Ka rere te manu me whakahoki mai te mana ki te whānau, hapu, iwi
Adorn the bird with feathers so it can flyIncreasingly infants and toddlers’ opportunities to experience the natural world are in jeopardy with so much of their lives spent indoors in structured, scheduled and supervised EC environments.
This course is for infant and toddler teachers, kaiako and caregivers.Participants will:
• explore infants and toddlers strong and natural affinity with Pāpātuanuku
• reflect on and experience ways to respond to this natural connectedness for
infants and toddlers and for themselves

We will do this through being outdoors, working with harakeke, clay, connecting with nature, environmental art, medicinal plants and rongoa. Reflection, discussion and inspirational keynote speakers will challenge beliefs, values, assumptions and practices.

This is an experiential marae-based course where we will practise whanaungatanga, manaakitanga, tautoko, toiora me kaitiakitanga.

This course is live in only. Course fee includes all catering, accommodation and airport transfers if required.

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
