The “Wired for Life” project is a collaboration among community partners from across the region. The WHRO Center for Regional Citizenship joined with the community to create tools for effective public participation supporting quality early childhood education. The half hour Wired for Life documentary is designed to increase public understanding of: (how critical the first five years of life are to a child’s future success; what defines quality early education; the challenges facing parents and providers; the impact of early childhood education on economic and workforce development; quality early education as a universal local, state and national issue that affects everyone.)

George Brown College Alumna, Linnet Reesor, graduated from the Early Childhood Education Program. Linnet was drawn to the program because of the required block placements that are unique to George Brown College. To ensure hands-on experience, the program requires seven weeks in class and seven weeks working in a child care centre. Linnet also took part in the trip to China that George Brown College offered students in the program to understand the different conditions that international children are exposed to. George Brown College offers a variety of ways that students can gain hands-on experience in their programs and experience success and opportunity in their careers.
