Thursday October 11 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM `Réfléchir et agir' pour les éducatrices des poupons et bambins

Demandiez-vous pourquoi les enfants font ce qu’ils font comme lancer, jeter et verser? Si oui, vous devriez vous joindre à nous pour la soirée pour «Réfléchir et agir» avec vos collègues qui travaillent auprès des poupons et bambins, car nous allons partager nos idées sur les schémas dans le jeu des enfants.

Quels sont ces schémas?

C’est vraiment une façon d’expliquer les besoins des enfants de faire des choses comme grimper, lancer des choses et se cacher dans de petits endroits. Ce sont les éléments constitutifs du cerveau, des comportements répétés qui, à leur tour, créent des liens dans le cerveau, des modèles de développement, d’apprentissage et de croissance.

Les participants recevront des ressources sur les différents types de schémas et auront l’occasion de réfléchir ensemble de la manière dont ils peuvent soutenir les schémas dans leurs programmes. Nous suivrons un modèle de "communauté d’apprentissage", alors préparez-vous à avoir des conversations puissantes avec vos collègues.

Le stationnement est gratuit et est situé devant l’entrée de la garderie.
