PLD 0-6 Years: Teaching Civility and Social Justice in a Montessori Environment

How do we create environments in which adults and tamariki live and work with dignity and grace while creating a path to peace?
Date: 1st April, 2023

With all that has been going on in the world over the past few years, there seems to be a large amount of disregard for others; meanness, indifference, and disrespect happening. It is heartbreaking. What has happened to civility? common courtesy? respect and kindness? What are tamariki learning from these self-obsessed and mean spirited times? How can we magnify respect and kindness in children and adults? 

In New Zealand, Te Whāriki highlights the importance of well-being through establishing strong relationships. However, living with incivility, we each pay a huge price in terms of health, quality of life, job satisfaction, relationships and much more. 

In this workshop Nikki Campbell will draw on Maren Schmidt’s, Christine Porath, and other’s work to share how we; school administrators, leaders, teachers, carers and parents, create an environment where respect and kindness are taught and used. 

Date: 1st April, 2023
Time: 9.00 – 12.00 pm
Location: Via Zoom at your place. The link will be sent two days prior to the workshops.
