Building confident learners through dispositions - Jane Lemon

Children’s learning is enhanced when they have strong dispositions for learning. Dispositions are developed through a child’s interaction with the people and experiences they encounter. Some dispositions, such as being curious, resourceful, and purposeful and persistent support children as learners. Join Jane Lemon, Citron Early Childhood for these workshops. Note: you can do one workshop - or all four, however the foundation session 'Dispositions for Learning' is a prerequisite session.
