Hilltop's Institute Evening Discussion Series Presents:
Environments for Infants and Toddlers
Tuesday, March 8th
Facilitated by Deb Curtis
Toddlers come to our programs with avid curiosity, determination, bigheartedness and delight in engaging with people and the world around them. Yet most toddler environments focus on health and safety rather than engagement and aesthetics, or simply look like scaled-down versions of preschool classrooms. We will review the amazing learning capacities of children during this special time of life and consider environments and materials that support and enhance their lively minds and big hearts.
Deb Curtis is a passionate advocate for children and childhood and the people who care for them. She has spent the past 35 years working with children and teachers in early childhood programs, observing and studying children and child development. Along with her current work as a Toddler Teacher at Epiphany Early Learning Preschool in Seattle, Deb also teaches teachers in college settings, seminars and institutes all over North America, New Zealand and Australia. She is the co-author of 8 books related to working with young children. You can learn more about these resources at www.ecetrainers.com
