Join Elena Marouchos for this special workshop.

What’s movement got to do with it?

During this session participants will gain an increased understanding of the natural unfolding motor development of infants and toddlers. We explore how the environment and the role of the teacher can hinder or support motor development and how the RIE® Principles fosters social emotional skills like cooperation and self-confidence.
