Examining Your Image of the Child: Connecting Beliefs, Principles, and Practices
How educators teach is rooted in their beliefs about children. The choices teachers make about activities to offer, how to support children, and how to respond to them are all influenced by this image. Bing Nursery School’s Founding Director, Edith Dowley embraced beliefs about children that inspired a positive, capable image of the child. Her vision shaped how the school approaches early education in the nursery school setting. In this seminar, participants will examine their own image of the child. We will examine how a positive lens impacts our interactions with children and furthers our understanding of the children in our care.
Hosted by Adrienne Lomangino, Sadie Parrinello and Emma Vallarino.
