In this 6-hour workshop we will actively explore how to change our practice from routine happenings to care moments that provide opportunity for learning and connection between educators and children. Through a range of examples we will actively explore the concept of ‘care as curriculum’ . We will learn how to transform practice from task-based chores to enjoyable moments of care.
