This workshop introduces relationship-based pedagogy, inspired by the pedagogical narration and experiences of taking tea with a group of early learners. We will explore what it means to move beyond the rush of daily routines in child care life, to creating meaningful rituals within these routines. Through interrogating our image of the child, the teacher and of early childhood education, participants will practice the art of slowing down, attuning and rethinking the everydayness of the routines they perform with children. Participants will leave with the creation of an action plan of where and how to begin their personal process of evolving their own teaching practice and school culture.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS

Note: Please bring a tea cup. This should be a thoughtful choice, an item that holds meaning for you. It could be something you find beautiful, or it may have deep sentimental value. We will be taking tea together as a group, and will share the story of our tea cups with one another.
