Professional Development Services

Our professional development solutions can be ad hoc/stand alone or integrated into the delivery of any PLAY+ order.

We customize professional development and support solutions to maximize  professional reflection and practices that connect pedagogy and architecture.

We are committed to a formative professional development approach-one that asks adults to get involved as teachers, to learn together with children and families and peers.

Our approach includes:

  • initial interview (face to face &/or virtual)
  • site visits
  • creation of professional development plan
  • links that show contribution to quality improvement

    • The “image of the child” as an inquisitive, creative, and competent individual
    • How learning happens-the pedagogy of relationships & listening 

    The Environment as the Third Teacher-

    • Space-the power of the learning environment to support or prohibit learning and teaching
    • How the learning environment supports, facilitates and informs all kind of valued learning
    • Re-considering our floor plan- the child as active researcher
