About the Event

Our words have more power than we realize when it comes to how we support young children’s learning and development. And, especially in situations where children are taking risks (like balancing across a log, climbing a tree, using a hammer), our words can tend to discourage healthy development instead of uplift it. This engaging workshop will allow educators to practice their adult-child interaction skills around risky play. Learn new phrases to try, how to turn your fear into scaffolding, and build awareness of your body language. Say “yes” to risky play!

This is a 1.5 hour training and is offered on a sliding scale (recommended contribution $30 USD). Please email rachel@twigandthread.com for group discounts.
