Congratulations to Dr. Maynes


Congratulations to Dr. Nancy Maynes, associate professor in the Schulich School of Education for having her book Kindergarten in Canada: A Play-Based Approach for Educators, listed on the Ontario College of Teachers site as one of its top 10 books and e-books for teachers.

The top 10 list features the most-requested books and eBooks in the college’s Margaret Wilson Library.

Here is an abstract:

Kindergarten in Canada is designed to help early childhood educators create effective play-based learning environments for 4 and 5 year olds and addresses the transition across several provinces to publicly funded, coordinated early learning programs. It provides broad coverage to help pre-service teachers and ECE candidates, as well as experienced teaches prepare for all aspects of a program. Rooted in both theory and practice, it examines ECE philosophy and brain-based research and contains samples of approaches in different Canadian provinces and territories and different jurisdictions around the world.

The Ontario College of Teachers licenses, governs and regulates Ontario's teaching profession in the public interest.  Teachers who work in publicly funded schools in Ontario must be certified to teach in the province and be members of the College. 

The College sets ethical standards of practice, issues teaching certificates and may suspend or revoke them, accredits teacher education programs and courses, and investigates and hears complaints about members.​
