SUMMER INSTITUTE OVERVIEW
Registration for 2021 is now open
Today’s young children are eager for life, for exploring the world, and for encountering others in a meaningful, intimate way. To support these young ones to grow into adults who have strength, enthusiasm, confidence and joy. As teachers and parents, our gift to the growing child is to recognize and support, above all, his or her unfolding spirit. We must also prepare ourselves in practical ways to meet the children who come into our lives.
Summer 2021 at Sophia’s Hearth offers three weeks of teacher education courses. Our summer faculty brings a depth of experience and knowledge developed over many years of caring for young children and their families, and studying the development of the child.
There are moments when life calls us to find a new viewpoint, to clarify our vocational commitment and personal path. Perhaps you find yourself in such a moment. We invite you to join us this summer for study, colleagueship, renewal, and new views.
It is our intent to be able to meet in person for the Summer Program. We will announce by May 1 if that needs to change due to the ongoing pandemic.
“The level of wisdom we have to learn from our teachers I find so humbling. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the energy, passion, and enthusiasm Jane and Susan bring to this work! It feels so cutting edge, which is incredibly exciting to be a part of, and I feel such passion myself with the teaching, but also with the sensing and experiencing of the timeliness of this knowledge.”
