Educator Seminar: "Spaces, Places and Ecologies: An ecosystems view of play in the early childhood classroom”
Registration opens Friday, June 4, 2021 at 9AM. Registration available through Eventbrite HERE.
Open to Early Childhood Educators. Limited to 100 attendees.
This is session FIVE of the 2021 Educator Summer Series:
What kinds of play does your outdoor space invite? For all the intentionality given to indoor classroom spaces, the outdoor environment rarely gets such consideration. In this workshop participants will consider the outdoor spaces in their particular teaching setting. Children bring their own meaning to these spaces, transforming them into places through play, imagination, and meaningful interaction. Furthermore, in considering space and place, the early childhood environment can be considered as an ecosystem. This ecological view highlights the ongoing interactions in the outdoor environment between children, teachers, materials, and landscape. Hosted by Bing Head Teachers Adrienne Lomangino and Emma Vallarino.
