Hilltop Children’s Center Study Day

What can educators and program leaders do to support reflective teaching and playful inquiry in their classrooms and schools? Join us for a full-day visit to Hilltop Children’s Center, a Seattle preschool known internationally for its engaging classroom environments, reflective teaching practice, and responsive approach to curriculum development.
•Explore child-centered and responsive curriculum planning, learning how to observe, reflect on, and develop play-based learning opportunities directly from children’s interests.
•Observe children and teachers at work in the classrooms and study examples of responsive curriculum projects with the educators who facilitate them.
•Talk through the challenges of child-centered and responsive curriculum with other educators. Ask questions, offer your experiences, and get practical suggestions for your own work.
This session has an additional $100 fee. Participants receive 6 STARS hours for participation in this tour.
