A Curriculum of Care and Respect for Infants

Learn how to develop a curriculum of care and respect in your setting as well as how you can implement primary care-giving

What does respect mean to you as a teacher or as a human being?

"We not only respect babies, we demonstrate our respect every time we interact with them. Respecting a child means treating even the youngest infant as a unique human being, not as an object" Magda Gerber

In this workshop we will be exploring the works of Emmi Pikler and Magda Gerber as a way of understanding respectful care for infants.

We will be reflecting inwards on the qualities needed by teachers of our youngest children.

This workshop will give you an understanding of primary care-giving and Emmi Pikler's guiding principles and how you can implement this in your setting.

As well as how the Pikler Approach aligns with Te Ao Maori.

"Educators demonstrate love by showing and teaching respect" Magda Gerber
