Contact: Bronwyn Bushby, Early Childhood Educators of Tasmania North

Date: Saturday 5 April 2014          RSVP by Wednesday 2 April 2014
Location: Bridport

Intended Audience: Early Childhood Educators

ECET North invites interested early childhood educators to an exciting professional learning opportunity with Chris Haas. Chris is well known in Department of Education circuits in Southern Tasmania for her presentations on the importance of Nature for the well being of children. She will be sharing some of her research with us and will then take us on a beach front excursion for a practical demonstration of the strategies that she believes have educational benefits for all young children.

Chris is a practicing Early Childhood Education teacher at the Mount Stuart Primary School kindergarten committed to extending children's rights to Nature Play, and has recently finished a Masters research project on the importance of Outdoor Play in Nature for children's development.
