This week we had dance parties in the classroom and it was beautiful to see the joy in both the children and teachers! We also did yoga and there’s something so great about a program that gets kids moving, creating, exploring, singing and using all their senses.
It’s fun to see the kids experiment with asserting their independence and exploring their world and seeing how everything fits. Realizing they need both space and connection and they’ generally know how and when to seek both. Inspired by their open hearts and curious minds everyday.
Working on creating a beautiful environment that inspires calm and came up with a butterfly installation using silk paper and fabric inspired by a project we did in Burnaby. I think there’s a way to work with engaging colours and simple activities and also bring in natural and sophisticated beauty that inspires wonder and that children can relate to both.
