Curative Education in Early Childhood
A Three Day Online Workshop with Robyn Brown of The Mulberry Center for Curative Education
June 16-18th, 10:00am- 1:30pm Central with a 30 minute break
All over the country today, we are receiving into our homes, programs, and classrooms a constant stream of children at younger and younger ages who are needing more than what many current models of care and education offer. They are coming with obstacles and challenges to their incarnation and growth that require a more specialized lens for seeing them and how to guide them in. Rudolf Steiner’s curative education lectures hold for us a beacon of light in our search for how to meet them.
Join us for a workshop with Robyn Brown to explore what it truly means to observe and why those observations are useful. read more...
