The beginning of the year can sometimes feel overwhelmingly busy, and it can be very easy to get caught up in this narrative of needing to ‘get things done’, ‘tick things off’ or ‘rush onto the next thing’. But what would happen to us all – to the families, to the children and to the adults who work alongside them – if we started the year with an attitude and a focus on ‘slow’? What opportunities exist for us to be more truly present – to be able to listen to and respond in more connected and authentic ways? What possibilities arise if we are better able to appreciate the richness that lies within everyday moments and interactions, in children’s ideas and in wonderings, in our shared work as a community of learners who are more able to lean into that space of ‘being’? This webinar will reconnect us with the importance and value of ‘slow’.
