Last Chance to Book for Reflections Professional Development Day - 8th October

Making Learning Visible
A Professional Development Day focussing on the use of documentation to support children’s and adult’s learning

Date: Saturday 8th October 2011, from 10.00am until 3.30pm
Venue:  St Paul’s Exhibition Centre, and Reflections Nursery, Worthing, West Sussex
Cost:  £45 including refreshments and a light lunch
Exhibition: The day includes a tour of the exhibition entitled, ‘Making Learning Visible - 5 years of children’s project work at Reflections Nursery’  

How can we best learn how children learn?  What is the value of documenting children’s learning for early years educators? What can children learn from documentation of their own work? What value should we place on the learning journey itself, rather than the outcomes?

Martin Pace, Director of Reflections, along with Angela Chick, Senior Atelierista and Yvonne Barr, Nursery Manager will be supported by other Reflections educators to give presentations and workshops covering five years of children’s learning at Reflections. The use of documentation as a reflective tool will be investigated.

We welcome registrations from all those working in the area of early childhood education and on creative arts/education projects with young children.
