Exploring the latest research in  relationship-based  parenting & childcare

combining neuroscience, mindfulness & pikler/rie & steiner philosophies

designed for parents & educators caring for children anywhere from birth through to the teenage years

Next interactive seminar 2020:

How children thrive
rie/pikler & steiner philosophy in action
Tuesday 7th April
7.30 - 9 pm
at the Mary Potter Centre
442 Durham Street North

During this interactive seminar I will present all that I have learnt from training at the Emmi Pikler Institute in Budapest with regard to the RIE/Pikler philosophy of relationship-based parenting and child care as well as weaving in my knowledge as a Steiner trained  educator. These ways of being with children are fundamental to growing kids that are happy, confident and who have a strong sense of their place in the world and their ability to create a fulfilling life for themselves. If you are curious about relationship-based parenting or you have been raising your children in this way and want to have an evening to reconnect and be inspired please come along and be a part of this conversation. 

Please note that ticket sales have been limited to 40 people (rather than the usual 100) so that we can distance ourselves from each other in the room.
