Why this workshop?

"When we view young children as capable, knowledgeable and agentic learners, we know they can develop, express and represent their play intentions.


Essential are the skills to notice and value children’s ideas, thinking, questions and theories so we can bring them into the process of planning for their play and reflecting so play can be maintained, renewed and extended."

During her career, Jennifer has served many international schools in Asia, Europe and in the Middle East.  Her roles have included teaching, developing curriculum, coordinating professional learning, chairing accreditation self-study committees, and providing parent education.
