New Zealand Study Tour 2017



Sunday 13th August to Friday 18th August 2017

REAIE together with INSPIRE: Professional Learning for teachers is pleased to be able to offer this focused live-in professional learning opportunity that includes presentations and visits to a number of contemporary thinking early childhood centres. Provocations for reflection and dialogue will also be an important part of this intensive week. Whilst this study week is open to all educators, it would be of most interest to educators working with the 0 - 6 age group.

The Study Program

The program is designed for educators involved with children birth to 6 years of age, however the collaborative reflection and dialogue could also engage those involved with the early years of primary school. This study tour is limited in numbers to 29 participants and will require 25 registrants to proceed. If you are interested please register as soon as possible - deposits will be refunded in full should the tour not proceed.
