Workshops For Educators

 

In addition to welcoming visitors throughout the school year to learn more about our child responsive approach, Hollingworth Preschool hosts occasional workshops for educators. In celebration of 30 years of Hollingworth Preschool, we hosted an all day conference focusing on Play; Child Responsive Approach to Education; Respect for Children, and Aesthetics. Past workshops include collaborations with the Monarch Teacher Network to offer Voices of the Land and Teaching and Learning With Monarch Butterflies. Please check back for other offerings.

Each fall, monarch butterflies from the U.S. and Canada begin a 2,000 mile migration to Mexico. The following spring, their great grandchildren return. 'Teaching and Learning With Monarch Butterflies' is a two-day teacher workshop combining classroom and field experiences emphasizing the journey and life cycle of the Monarch butterfly. Participants are provided with the knowledge, skills, materials and confidence to raise Monarchs in the classroom and create an outstanding learning experience for their students.

 Voices from the Land

Voices from the Land

In collaboration with the educators from the Monarch Teacher Network, Hollingworth Preschool hosted one and half day workshops focusing on the interactions between nature, science, art, creative expression, and technology. Engaging teachers in the philosophical approaches regarding the role of nature in education, teachers are provided opportunities for rich hands on experiences and activities to directly bring back into the classroom! Workshops are held in the classroom as well as at our local parks, emphasizing nature as classroom and teacher.
