Practical Life Workshop

Date: August 12th, 2017

Time: 9am – 1pm

Location: 4400 Hazelbridge Way Unit 540, Richmond BC V6X 3R8

Workshop Description:

What is:

Coordination, Order, Concentration and Independence

When Children come into the world their first function is to adapt to their environment so that they may become a member of the human group to which they uniquely belong. The mechanism by which this occurs is one of absorption of all the elements surrounding them, obeying vital inner directives common to all children.

“When we speak about the behaviour of men and animals, we refer to their purposeful movements. This behaviour is the centre of their practical life. It is not just the practical life in a house, cleaning rooms, watering plants, etc., that is important, but the fact that everyone in the world must move with a purpose and must work, not only for himself but also for others. All work is done not only for ourselves but also for others.”

*This workshop also offers to early childhood educators who are interested in completing professional development hours for license renewal purposes as certificate will be issued at the end of the workshop.
