    Implementation Considerations

    ​Target population: educators.

    Program/practice descriptions and detail: workshops are delivered face-to-face. Reflective practice is incorporated into the workshops. Through the workshop, educators are provided with new knowledge and a range of resources, checklists, tip sheets, activities, and play-based ideas allowing them to immediately incorporate practical strategies into daily routines.

    Current best implementation knowledge: when teams of educators attend a workshop together, and use the range of resources, tools and supports, they are able to work more effectively on intentional daily literacy practices as a team around the child.
