We had another insightful day learning at Boulder Journey School on Thursday. The morning started with everyone choosing classrooms, activities, or interest areas to see during the morning.
The afternoon included conversations about teacher support and training, the concept of messing about (the importance of adults exploring the materials that children use), and the school’s process for their art studio.
After a busy day of thinking, we were able to explore some of Boulder; some went tubing along boulder creek and others went hiking along the Chautauqua trail in the Flatirons.
You have heard a little about our week – we would like to hear a little about yours.
Welcome to the idea blog for the Children’s Center.
Frequently we see and hear about interesting ideas in regards to the care of young children. This space will give staff room to post their findings and hopefully allow us to show others where we are trying to go.
Our first sets of posts will be from our training trip to Boulder Journey School in Boulder Colorado. http://www.boulderjourneyschool.com/ This is a Reggio Emilia inspired school. For more info about the Reggio approach to early learning check out this site. http://www.reggiochildren.it/identita/reggio-emilia-approach/?lang=en
The Children’s Center teaching staff, as well as the Early Childhood Education faculty, will be spending 3 days learning at the school.
