We are pleased to invite you to a rich evening of stories, reflecting and learning with Sarah Felstiner.

Educators in Reggio Emilia, Italy have described the school as a "three-legged stool" made up of children, families, and educators...if one of the pieces is missing, the whole thing falls down! So how can we encourage families to become meaningfully engaged in our programs, and in studying their children's learning?

By designing a year-round plan for partnership, supported by pedagogical narration, we can invite families to participate in curriculum planning, documentation, and assessment. Using examples from Hilltop Children's Center in Seattle, this discussion will offer possible models for authentic collaboration between families and educators.

This workshop is part of Frog Hollow Learning Centre's Annual Conference.
