About the author

Betty Exelby networks and mentors with early childhood educators who are interested in implementing organizational changes within their centers. She hosts workshops related to the design/redesign of indoor and outdoor spaces. After fifteen years, as a teacher and supervisor of childcare and parent co-operative programs, Betty accepted a position as a professor of early childhood education at Thunder Bay’s Confederation College. This was followed by a move to Loyalist College (Belleville, Ontario), where she and her on-campus daycare colleagues studied and explored the Reggio Emilia approach. This initiative, along with many conferences and workshops, brought the approach to the attention of educators throughout Ontario and attracted attendees from across Canada. In 1998, after a thirty-year professorship, she retired for a brief time and then accepted an executive director post with GeoKids, located on the USGS campus in Menlo Park, California. Upon returning to Canada, Betty joined Project OutReach and continues to assist educators with their professional development goals. In addition, Betty is a consultant with Gadeki and Associates and is the coordinator of ECE projects. Betty Exelby lives in Mill Bay, British Columbia, Canada.
