The center is closed on Friday, March 11th because the entire child care center staff is attending a full day training on March 12th (we are swapping a Friday for a Saturday off). The training, Elements of Reflective Teaching, is sponsored by the TN Reggio Study Group. We are delighted that two McKendree teachers will be lending their voices to the training day. Four elements of reflective teaching: space, time, resources, and the teacher’s role will be explored as masterful teachers share their stories from infant, toddler and preschool classrooms. Zoe Matthews, from our Movers and Shakers Infant Class, and Heather Marshall, from our Discoverers Toddler Class, will each speak about the role of resources in offering children rich early learning experiences.
We are excited about furthering our understanding of child-directed and inquiry-based learning and proud that McKendree is represented so well by our outstanding teachers.
