Event description

Description

Join us as we learn more about practical ways to include science learning in the holistic play environment from a research project carried out in three Auckland Early Childhood Education centres. When we notice children's interests, how do we recognise potential science learning and respond in ways that support learning through play?

Dr. Barbara Backshall, Professional Services Manager - BestStart Educare and previously Director of Early Childhood Teacher Education at the University of Auckland, has over 30 years experience in Early Childhood Education in NZ. Dr Backshall is passionate about working with children's ideas to extend their thinking and looks forward to sharing her experiences during this Inspiring Minds session.

"There is a real joy as a teacher, at connecting with children as they develop ideas about the world they live in".
