What does respect mean to you as a teacher? 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 to the qualities needed by teachers of our youngest children.

This workshop will give you an understanding of primary care-giving and the 7 principles of primary care-giving and how you can implement this in your setting.

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

For most of my life I have been surrounded by little people, whether it has been during my 18 years of working as an early childhood teacher and centre director or as a parent of my own 3 children.

As a teacher and a parent, I advocate for the RIE way of being and a massive believer in empowering children to learn through free play. Respectful relationships and heart led leadership are at the soul of who I am. I am a proponent of kindness and a seeker of joy.

My passion has always been fostering the lifelong love for learning in children as well as working with teachers to grow them into heart-led, empowered early childhood professionals. I work privately with centre owners, centre leaders, teachers and teams. I am also a provider of SELO for the Ministry of Education.

My mission is to empower you by giving you the tools to help you to co-create magic in your life, your team's lives and the lives of the children and families in your place - because people matter.
