Early childhood educators know – their students are energetic, curious and creative. Teachers work hard to provide their students with stimulating, engaging, supporting, nurturing and meaningful classrooms to match their natural  love of exploration and learning. Teachers also focus on creating positive relationships characterized by trust and support with students, parents and other leaders.

It can be a tall order.

Reflective practice is one tool that can help teachers meet these demands and grow as professionals. What is reflective practice?

It is the ongoing process of looking and observing, recording one’s own teaching practices and taking action to make positive changes in the classroom for young children. Reflective practice has been shown to foster professional development for teachers and result in positive benefits for children.

This introductory workshop will provide an overview of reflective practice, why it is important and some strategies for incorporating it into one’s day-to- day work

By the end of this session, participants will be able to understand reflective practice and its importance in early childhood education, engage in several reflective activities and discuss how to integrate reflective practice into everyday work /
