TRU to submit plans for unique early years hub

November 2, 2020

Thompson Rivers University is planning to centralize its early childhood education program, research, and non-profit day-care services into one building. The three components are currently located across TRU’s campus, but the new centre will bring them together in a unique way, creating an early years learning hub in British Columbia’s interior. TRU will be submitting an application for the project to Kamloops council in November. “It’s like this perfect community of practitioners, children themselves, those who are learning to be teachers and researchers,” said TRU dean of faculty of education and social work Airini. “It’s that combination of teaching, research, practice, which makes it available for informing policy and for helping our community develop in really good ways.” Kamloops This Week (BC)
