We know that early learning classrooms are becoming more and more complex. In this session, we hope to introduce some tools to build your “disrupting toolbox”, so that you can think about and respond to these complexities with creativity and empathy to reignite joy in working with Early Learners.

What does it mean to be a disruptor? To make “good trouble”? And does it have a place in Early Childhood Education? Come journey with us as we explore the concept of “disrupting early learning” to make our early learning classrooms the best they can be for this generation of early learners.


Through pre-recorded and live interactive elements, participants will engage in thoughtful reflection and dialogue around their practice, focusing on the idea of “disrupting” established early learning practices to make space for shifts that benefit both the teacher and learner.

Participants will explore practical tools to make “good trouble” by building a playful relationship with their practice and the children they serve.
