About this Event

The Importance of Ritual and Traditions in Early Learning

Rituals and traditions are important to every culture especially during challenging times. The pandemic of 2020 has produced challenges for everyone. Rituals and traditions can help educators to “create a safe, warm and secure environment where children are able to learn and grow” (Howell & Reinhard, 2015, p. 1). This is what we want for children, especially in these uncertain times. As educators return to the classroom, how might rituals and traditions be able to create space for deeper connection in our spaces? What might we gain by embracing and creating rituals around the everyday moments with children? Join Diane as we explore the power and importance of rituals and traditions in early learning environments. This webinar will include programming ideas as well as opportunities for dialogue.
