"No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship" - James Comer.
In this workshop we will be exploring a curriculum of care and respect for toddlers and giving you tools to meet the needs of this exciting and unique age group of children.
We will be exploring how toddlers learn and how we can connect with these unique human beings.
Some of the areas we will be covering are relationships, self regulation, social competency, dispositions and schema.
A must for all teachers who work with toddlers.
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.
Thank you for enrolling in this course. I am looking forward to sharing thoughts and ideas with you about how to form stronger connections with toddlers.
