This workshop is for ECE educators and New Entrant teachers.  The costs for the event are being met by Wairarapa Early Childhood Network with support from Lands Trust Masterton and REAP Wairarapa.

If you think the work of Emmi Pikler relates only to infants, I‘ve got news for you! The Pikler Institute cares for children from 0 – 7 years of age.

The profound lessons about respect that I learned at the Emmi Pikler Institute have been translated into our team’s approach working with 3 – 6 year olds. Over the past few years we have successfully trialled and grown in the ‘how’ of respect at a very practical level with older children at The Nest Kindergarten. This transformative practice working at The Heart Level underpins new depths of learning and creates the Culture of Kindness in Action.


This workshop offers you the opportunity to grow and expand your understanding of applying the Culture of Kindness to all age groups. Be prepared to have your thinking challenged, your heart touched, and be inspired to play with these approaches in building relationships in play, and in your role as a teacher.
