Study Groups

Study Groups are opportunities for educators to sit with an inquiry or a long-term project and study it in depth. The facilitated small group discussions will help educators to expand their understanding of how long-term projects take form and what they could, as educators, be noticing to support this process.

Study groups are facilitated by Maryam Naddaf.

As the Director of the Reggio-Inspired Learning Centre, Maryam works closely with Frog Hollow educators, children and their families in designing curriculum; she take part in professional development opportunities for Frog Hollow educators, and facilitate and organize workshops, tours, consultation services and roundtables for the Early Childhood Education and Early Years communities.

Certificates of Professional Development hours will be issued
