This module introduces you to the relationship between sustainability and settlement, especially the settlement of children. With an overview of migration and settlement, you will be introduced to ideas about sustainability and you will have an opportunity to add consideration of rights as a lens that shapes our understanding of both settlement and sustainability.
Judith has been a writer, researcher & training specialist in early childhood education for many decades and an outstanding contributor to EYPDC. With much sadness, we share the news of Judy's recent and unexpected death. Judy passed away suddenly, courageously and peacefully on March 1st at Guelph General Hospital with loved ones by her side.
As a Canadian consultant with an international perspective, much of her work has centered on young immigrant and refugee settlement, including drafting legislation in Canada and the US and speaking internationally. Judy's goal was to build bridges between research & practice, mainstream & newcomer experiences. She is particularly interested in the development of appropriate standards for the delivery of quality care for newcomer populations & in the relationship between the settlement of young children & their successful transition to kindergarten.
Judy made it known that she did not want her work and impact to disappear, and so we continue to offer her amazing content, in three areas, with respect and gratitude for her continued advocacy.
