Presented by Poppy Savage and Max Christie.
Rituals enable both children and adults to form a deep connection to people, places, and things. Routines are necessary and evident in the environment for young children. Moving these routines towards rituals is simply a matter of being thoughtful, intentional, and mindful of our preparations and actions. Through images, discussion, video clips, and the sharing of practical inspiration, Poppy and Max will guide participants through the beauty of rituals in ECE settings.
