    Reflections From Student Field Placements

    Self Reflection is good practice for all educators, and today we're glad to share the reflections of six different final semester ECE students. Hajra, Nikita, Shilpam, Raihana, Sangeeta and Maninder are all from Sheridan College; they had this to say about lessons they had learned from Field Placements,
    "The topic we wanted to talk to you about is our personal experiences in our field placements throughout the years, what we have learned and how we have in-turn become better ECE’s!" 

    We are thrilled to share these questions, reflections, and stories.

    On Mentorship - Nikita
    “It is so important to have a good mentor as my first placement mentor was very supportive. She taught me how to be a better ECE. She supported me and guided me throughout my placement. She gave me really helpful advice such as how to solve problems with children, how to assist them, guide them and be there for them. It is so important as ECE’s to have mentors or someone who can help guide and support us to be better ECE’s. Professors in this field can be mentors as well. My very first placement was at a PLASP child care centre and my mentor was so helpful and supportive. Since that was my first placement, my experiences and what I learned really had an impact on me as an ECE and it is something that will stick with me forever.”
