Workshops and Presentations

WORKSHOP

Creating a Listening Atmosphere

Full day or half day workshop that starts with a presentation, "The Art of Listening" and ends with hands-on "messing about" explorations of materials, activities and documentation to see how play can enhance children's listening skills, and how you as an educator become a better listener. 

Each workshop is unique and is adapted to meet the desired learning outcomes of the participants

Presentations

The Art of Listening

Listening is an essential part of communication, it is something many educators are familiar with, the need to listen to the voice of the child. This presentation not only supports you as an educator to become a better listener with tips and inspiration, it also about how we should support children to listen to each other.

With better listening the classroom/group develops a more respectful atmosphere; where children and adults listen to understand rather than just hear.

30 minutes to 2 hours.

Philosophy with Preschoolers

A Reggio Emilia Approach to exploring philosophy with preschoolers - not focussing on any particular method but encompassing many because children do not learn in a set way, but have a hundred languages... so why not explore the hundred languages of philosophy.
From sitting in circles exploring the children's ideas, to philosophy through art, movement - the whole curriculum

1 hour to 3 hours
