For Parents, Grandparents, Nannies, Early Childhood Educators

The Art of Caring: Working with Children under Three

This course explores the manifold tasks and gestures of care giving for children under three. The main focus is on working on the quality aspect of providing care and enhancing the knowledge of the participants on the development of the young child. Part of the work with young children is the inner preparation of the adult and the external preparation of the environment. Rhythm, play and movement are all essential to our study along with a keen appreciation of the art of observing. Practical activities include making a simple doll and creating a collection of lullabies. We will also explore the important question on how parents, carers and educators can work together.

What our students say

“The course was wonderful! One of the best I have attended in quite some time. Renate was incredibly knowledgeable; there was a great mix of content including lecture, workshop and hands on and the content was well organised and insightful. I have nothing but positive feedback from my experience.” AF

“I noticed a real shift in my work with the day care after that weekend, spending much more time with patience in the care practices, eating, nappies, and dressing. I have also taken much more time and care with the baby who is 9 months old, as I feel this is so important after listening to Renate’s lectures.” MB
