Lisa Williams, the instructor at Campus Regina Public, had this to say about the program: “Students in our program will greatly benefit from the HIGH FIVE PHCD training by being able to put their knowledge into action immediately after completing the course when they work with young children throughout our course”.
“Fantastic, fun experience. Thank you for teaching me so much!” – Campus Regina Public student
Students that enroll in the Early Childhood Education (ECE) program at Campus Regina Public have the opportunity to work with children and youth throughout their program. While taking the ECE program, students are able to receive a credit for University of Regina Education courses. HIGH FIVE® PHCD training is an additional tool that will be used throughout their education and future careers.
The Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association (SPRA) and the Saskatchewan Association for Community Education (SACE) collaborated on a three-year project called Youth Community Education through Recreation (YCER). The YCER project focuses on getting students the tools and knowledge that they need to be able to become leaders in the province of Saskatchewan. Through this program, the students at Campus Regina Public received their HIGH FIVE® training during class time.
Principles of Healthy Child Development training gives the students valuable resources and knowledge that can be incorporated into their daily programming and interactions with youth. By incorporating this HIGH FIVE® training in their class time, the Campus Regina Public students will have a better understanding of what it takes to be a leader that makes an impact on a child’s recreation and sport program.
