· Weaving Respect into every day practice: Providing practical approaches and insights while unpacking the RIE principles with regards to enhancing caregiving moments and facilitating the development of empathy in infants and toddlers. This includes valuing interdependence as a step towards independence and using new insights as a resource to facilitate difficult conversations and build strong relationships with whanau.
· Free Movement: The importance of unrestricted and unhurried gross and fine motor development as researched by Dr. Emmi Pikler. Understanding the sequence of this development in order to observe and appreciate how an infant’s learning unfolds and how this relates to play. We will discuss the pressures of ‘tummy time’ and the benefits of waiting for when the infant is ready.
· Revisiting caregiving as a pleasurable moment: The value of waiting for the child to initiate ‘the next step’ during mealtimes and nappy changes. We will discuss language as a tool to facilitate change. Viewing ‘discipline’ as learning and nurturing – debunking the myth of an Educaring approach as too permissive. Transitions as interruptions and disruptions.
This workshop is presented by Elena Marouchos and Ania Wojcikowski of the New Zealand Infant and Toddler Consortium. Both Elena and Ania are experienced infant and toddler educarers who work together at The Learning Centre in Ponsonby Auckland.
