Event description

Children learn best about their physical world when they are able to manipulate it – both in creating new elements and taking existing things to pieces to see how they work. It is through these two seemingly opposite processes that children can develop and test their working theories of how the world is put together. Join early childhood education teacher and playscape builder Robin Christie for a hands-on day building with wooden pallets and deconstructing common everyday objects. Please wear old clothes and closed-toe shoes.

Who should attend: Educators in all settings

About the presenter:

Robin Christie, Childspace. Childspace was founded by wife and husband team Toni and Robin Christie. The first Childspace centre was opened in 1994, and was situated in Christchurch at Toni and Robin's first home. Toni and Robin have two school-aged children, Max and Tui, who both attended Childspace centres throughout their early childhood.

Robin, with both an Early Childhood Education and Fine Arts background, is responsible for all the design and maintenance of the Childspace environments. As a team, Robin and Toni have presented seminars and workshops to both national and international audiences on the topics of environment design, management, leadership, early childhood education curriculum and programming, infants and toddlers and storytelling and science.

We believe that early childhood is the most significant stage of every person’s development and are driven to provide practical, relevant, natural and aesthetic resources and environments for all who play and work with very young children.

Event location

Our children are our greatest hope... every thinking person must realise that when this bitter strife is over we must build up a better world, and it is only through the children that this can be done.
