Whangarei, NZ [ECE Teachers, Open Spaces Preschool]

Workshop title: "Place-based Education: Tangata Whenuatanga"

As we welcome in the revised Te Whariki, it is a time to pause and reflect on our practice and curriculum. By taking a Place-based Education approach, we can return to the foundations of Te Whariki and enable Kaiako to authentically bring the four principles to life. Join us as we explore Play Based Education and how it influences practice.

Personal Bios: Rose Short and Geoff Fugle are teachers at Open Spaces Preschool. Through our regular adventures in the Wild Woods we have explored meaningful ways to connect our tamariki with nature.
