Responding to Children's Interests Series

Professional Growth Opportunities

The STF has COVID-19 measures in place. Please review the precautions before attending an in-person Federation event or facility.

Based on a foundation of the vision and principles in Play and Exploration: Early Learning Program Guide, Responding to Children’s Interests will provide educators with opportunities to explore classroom practices to spark student interest and to build projects around invitations and play.

Participants will:

• Build understanding of emergent curriculum for young children and creating invitations to spark interest.

• Explore the environment as the third teacher and its purpose in supporting projects.

• Strengthen educators’ capacity to observe, listen, document and reflect in order to support and scaffold learning.

• Respond to children’s interests and develop a project experience with children, which may be shared on


PreKindergarten and Kindergarten educators, support staff and administrators

Pre-learning required: attendees should have completed Phases I and II of Play and Exploration or have comparable learning and experience working in early learning settings.
