INFANT TODDLER WORKSHOP SERIES

Our Fifth Annual Infant Toddler Workshop Series: 

What’s Really Happening in Children’s Play? 

For teachers of children from birth to three years old. Held monthly from November 2017 - May 2018.

This year’s series will focus on creating meaningful, responsive curriculum for infants and toddlers.  As teachers, we often look to external inspirations for new and fun ideas to bring back to our classrooms and that can be rich and meaningful.  But what if we take a step back and ask, what do infants and toddlers really need?  Together we will delve into how we as teachers impact the work of children; whether it may be our environment, expectations, materials offered or time and space for children to engage in their own learning.   Join us in discovering what is really going on during play and share how we can best support and offer purposeful, meaningful learning.                 

Training Certificates will be provided.
