The BCE Heartbeat
"Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day!"
Elementary school is not too early to start teaching your child about career awareness. It is important for your child to become aware of how his or her schooling is connected to a successful future.
While in elementary school, you can help your child:
• Discover the variety of jobs available to him or her;
• Connect what he or she is learning in school to real-world situations;
• Imagine himself or herself in an occupation; and
• Develop work-readiness skills such as working and playing with others, making decisions, solving problems and being a leader.
