In order for children to play with their own ideas we need to consider whether the environment invites curiosity and inquiry. When thinking about the environment it is not only the physical space but how we use time within the space. If we slice and dice children's days through following a teacher imposed roster then we run the risk hindering deep engagement.
What an absolute pleasure it was to have Neuroscience Educator; Nathan Wallis, join us in Hamilton to present a seminar: The impact of Neuroscience on our practice. This was a Ministry of Education sponsored seminar, organised by ELP.
