What a fantastic morning we had at North Coast Church Preschool despite the threatening San Diego clouds! We were expecting 30 educators, and over 50 arrived at the preschool for an inspiring school visit. Marcia Boeche, Director of NCCP was a perfect host, welcoming, inviting, and moved with people as they flowed in and out of spaces. She had two of her amazing teachers in everyone room, sharing their journey. And what we all loved, was their encouragement of picture taking! And their Studio Teacher, Cathie, was amazing! So giving and sharing of her space! A huge thank you to Marcia and her entire staff for sharing their beautiful classrooms and outdoor areas. Everyone was very inspired!

If you attended this morning with us, please share your reflections in the comments below! If you would like to be put on the list for San Diego Reggio Roundtable's School Site Visit's, please contact us via email at info@sdreggioroundtable.org.

Want to revisit the Spring Outdoor Classroom conference and Thinking Out Loud at Cuyamaca College? Come and join members of the San Diego Reggio Roundtable Steering Committee to hear Richard Louv speak at the San Diego Natural History Museum next Tuesday, July 10th at 7:00 p.m. “The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.” —RICHARD LOUV

“There is one truth about every educational

setting: teachers talk too much and listen too

little. Children need teachers who know that

what motivates children is to have their

questions answered, not the teacher’s.

Teachers who stimulate more questions than

they directly provide are truly teaching.”

Using the discussion guide provided by For Our Babies, the group will delve into Lally’s “informed and urgent plea for action to change policy and practice.” To find out more information, please visit the For Our Babies.
