Noticing the magic in the everyday: celebrating the extraordinary in the ordinary


There is so much to consider, think about, and plan for as we seek to create the best possible learning engagements and environments for children. This webinar will instil new life into interactions with children, alongside planning in response to a sensitive awareness of the potential of small encounters. You will appreciate the complex in simple moments rich in possibilities that can be easy to miss. 

We will consider children's learning through the lens of relationships, relationships with each other, adults, materials, and places, honouring how children encounter the world in their unique way. 

There will be a focus on:

  • HOW to make the most of these everyday encounters, from routines, rituals, and unexpected moments that have the potential to be remarkable learning opportunities
  • The role of documentation in making these rich moments of learning visible
  • Planning in response to observations

This experience will inspire you to listen to children differently, look at your day through a new lens, rethinking your approach to responsive teaching.
