I'm Sally Haughey, founder of Fairy Dust Teaching and the Wonder Tribe.
During this last year I have traveled to different parts of the world talking to early childhood educators. There has been one common thread throughout my travels – the child is at the heart of everything.
Defined curriculum means “the subjects comprising a course of study.” The subject underneath everything we do is the young child.
Join educators from around the world in honoring young children as co-constructors of the educational process!
Join me and 10 experts as we explore honoring the potential of all children.
Build your teaching toolkit with these dynamic and practical sessions!
