Creative Circle Time Workshops

These workshops are designed for early childhood educators and are intended to generate additional circle time resources for providers and centres. Hours from these workshops may be used toward professional development requirements for childcare providers and assistants.

Farm
Gain professional development hours in a fun two-hour workshop to enhance your farm-themed circle time. We will be reminding you of traditional favourites as well as introducing you to lots of unique new songs and stories. All of our stories will be accompanied by templates to make felt stories at home. We will be making a story in class so please remember your sharp scissors and a flat surface to carry home your wet felt pieces.
