Early Childhood Development
The Supportive Environments and Experiences for Development (SEED) program is an early childhood development initiative for Jamati parents and caregivers of children ages birth to four years (birth to three years in Ontario). We provide weekly sessions that enable facilitated group discussions for families and promote age-appropriate developmental experiences in music and movement, early literacy, spirituality and faith, and school readiness. An electronic format program is available for families with limited geographic access to an existing SEED centre.
To respect Canadian guidelines around screen time, SEED will not be hosted virtually for parents/caregivers and their children aged birth-3 years. We instead invite you to register to receive online resources and regular phone calls. Through this registration, we will be able to contact you to let you know when additional programming will commence.
SEED 3 will begin on October 17, 2020 and will be delivered via weekly, live 45-minute virtual Zoom sessions for both parents/caregivers and their Ismaili children aged 3-4 years. For more information and to register, click below.
SEED Facilitators are required to support weekly sessions with parents/caregivers and their children. If you are a professional early childhood educator, a student, or someone with an interest or passion in early childhood development, we encourage you to apply using the link below.
