Notice reference #: 1HA8xJ

Presented by Poppy Savage and Max Christie.

Join kaiako Poppy and Max in an exploration into learning and growing alongside tamariki in te taiao (the natural world). This engaging full-day immersement in pedagogies of nature in Aotearoa will provoke thought and discussion around the importance of having a nature- and place-based curriculum. We will also delve into the practicalities, challenges and opportunities that come with this curriculum, empowering teachers in their unique environment. Concepts such as risky play, tuākana- tēina, kaitiakitanga and kotahitanga are explored, with each concept aligning with both Te Whāriki and Te Whare Tapa Wha. We wish to empower all teachers to nurture the well-being of tamariki through exploring their natural world and the curiosity it invites.

Course runs from 9am-3pm.

Normal Price: $195

Location: Ruakura Conference Centre @ the Park, Waikato Innovation Park, 1 Melody Lane, Hamilton, 3241.
