Webinar: Leading Our Children Back to School

Eva de Gosztonyi

How can we lead our children back to school amid all of the changes COVID-19 has brought? What do we do with their worries (and ours), as we face uncharted waters? How do we prepare them for physical distancing and other new regulations that schools will have to impose? This webinar will address these questions and more. It will help parents to take the lead with their children and give them some tips for managing the emotions and behaviours that will arise as a result of this new way of being in schools.

Webinar: Why PLAY is Important

Eva de Gosztonyi

The brain has two hemispheres – Left and Right

The Left hemisphere is used to learn facts and focus in on details and rules. It wants the answer.

The Right hemisphere looks at the whole picture and makes sense of lots of details. It considers the context.

The right hemisphere requires EXPERIENCES, not INFORMATION to develop. AND SO THE NEED FOR PLAY – LOTS OF PLAY

Returning to school with social distancing

Martine Demers and Catherine Korah

Before coming back to school, it's important to find out what will be the SAME and what will be DIFFERENT. Due to the pandemic of COVID-19 we ALL need to do Social Distancing. We’ll explain what that means and what it will look like AT SCHOOL. Some of these changes will be fairly easy, others will take some practice, we’re going to work on this together!

Martine Demers and Catherine Korah

The pandemic of COVID-19 has stirred up HUGE waves of emotions. We are seeing all kinds of behaviours in our children, but we’re also feeling so many as adults. We’ll look at different areas of play and discovery that can invite and prime emotional expression with children. Please know that they are equally beneficial for adults. If we have a good level of playfulness….it will help to solicit this in our children.
