Workshop: Reggio Approach in School Age Programs
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
School Age programs are traditionally (and widely) perceived as places for children to pass time until their parents return from work and take them home. For anyone who has worked in a School Age program, it is no news that these after school programs are full of potential for children to engage in social interactions, build and maintain meaningful relationships and practice true citizenship.
In this workshop we invite School Age educators to think about their role beyond child-minders and to look deeply into possibilities these short few hours can offer.
Many educators have found it difficult to practice the principles of the Reggio Emilia approach in School Age programs. At Frog Hollow, we have navigated these difficulties for over 12 years and we are excited to share our experiences with you!
While we share stories from our School Age children and their educators, we provoke the audience to wonder: How do School Age children view the role of teachers and students? What influences our definition of education, educators and learners? What is the role of the educator in a School Age program? How can we start to think of a School Age program that is a place deep in meaning and crucial in one's self and collective identity?
