David Spraggs

Gisborne, NZ, [ECE Teacher, Consultant]

Workshop title: " Less is best" (workshop full)

During this workshop we will explore what happens to the programme, if the programme is only about people and the things that they find around themselves. We will discuss what happens when the space is overloaded with 'stuff" and children have moved into things that all they desire is "entertainment".

Personal Bios: Having worked in early childhood for over 35 years David brings an ECE focus to the provocations he provides for people. He is married and lives in Gisborne with his wife and 4 children. His passions include nature education and the hope that one-day the Ministry of Education will open up opportunity for Forest kindergartens similar to the ones that he has played in in Europe.
