Looking for inspiration to refresh or reinvent your classroom environment? Want to explore ways to make your teaching spaces reflect your educational values? Want to learn practical skills for creating spaces that draw children into exploration, community, and learning?|
Visit Hilltop for an upcoming Professional Study Day to deepen your teaching practice, connect with other educators, and be inspired!
Participants begin their day with an introduction to the values and teaching practices that guide Hilltop's work. This is followed by an opportunity to see those values and practices in action by observing in classrooms and studying documentation. Visitors then join Hilltop educators for a Pedagogical Lunch, offering a relaxed opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the practices and strategies observed that morning. The afternoon concludes with presentations by Hilltop educators, sharing stories of their work in classrooms.
Study Days are a great opportunity to see Hilltop classrooms in action, enter into dialogue with area educators about their thinking and practice, and learn more about Hilltop's unique approach to curriculum development.
While larger groups of educators can schedule and customize their own Study Day experience, these Open-Enrollment Study Day events are a great opportunity for individuals and smaller groups of educators to participate by joining with other area early childhood professionals.
