Event description

Description

Saturday, April 21: Balls, Ramps, and Wheels
Saturday, May 19: Paper and Fabric
Saturday, June 16: Water

Most parents know, inherently, that play is good, but how do we find the balance between totally free-form exploration and adult-directed activity? What are some techniques that may help caregivers feel involved and supportive of their child, but at the same time giving their child the space to be self-directed in their play? We will explore those questions, and more, through hands on use of materials such as clay, water, paper, and things that move.

Adults and toddlers ages 2-3 years old are invited to explore materials in a series of workshops led by educators Petra Fraties and Shawna Thompson (both have backgrounds in play-, relationship-, and inquiry-based learning models.)

Through hands-on use of open ended materials we will explore:
- The balance of free-form exploration with adult-directed activity
- Language that encourages, supports, redirects, or sets appropriate limits
- Age appropriate expectations for social interactions of toddlers

Are children welcome at the event? What should I bring?
