The Early Years: Career Development for young children is a set of guides for parents and educators to help children develop a healthy sense of self and achieve their full potential. This research conducted at Memorial University explores how to positively influence the career development process of children aged 3 to 8 years, emphasizing the use of experiential and play-based learning methods.

The guides are available for free download at ceric.ca/early_educators and ceric.ca/early_parents. Hard copies can be purchased at $14.99 each or $10.49 (plus tax) if purchasing 10 or more.

Also, CERIC will be hosting two free webinars on Career Development for Young Children on May 28, 2018 (Educators) & June 1, 2018 (Parents), presented by Memorial University researcher Dr Mildred Cahill. All registrants will receive a recording of the webinar, so register even if you can't attend.
