Workshop: Living with Material: Thinking about Invitations & Provocations
Beauty and aesthetics are important elements of education for young children. The sense of beauty and the joy and pleasure it bring to our hearts is everlasting and impacts our intellectual & moral experiences.
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, we recognize that children are not isolated entities, but unique individuals who are constantly relating with the people and the materials around them. Educators hold the important role of understanding the characteristics of materials and bringing them to life.
In this interactive workshop we will explore the ways we appreciate beauty in our work with children and their right to their 100 languages.

Workshop: Reggio Approach in School Age Programs
In this workshop we invite School Age educators to think about their role beyond child-minders and to look deeply into possibilities these short few hours can offer.
Many educators have found it difficult to practice the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach in School Age programs. At Frog Hollow, we have navigated these difficulties for over 12 years and we are excited to share our experiences with you!
