Special Events at OFS Mill Valley

Old Firehouse School Presents an Innovative Teachers Project Reggio Seminar:

Old Firehouse School will be presenting the 2015 Innovative Teacher Project (ITP) Fall Seminar: A Conversation with Lella Gandini. This will be an all-day seminar, focusing on expressive languages, technology and the Reggio Approach.

What is The Innovative Teacher Project?  “Like the citizens of Reggio Emilia, Italy, The Innovative Teacher Project (ITP) strives to create a culture of dialogue and research in Northern California that promotes the pleasure of inquiry among children and adults.  The cornerstone of the Reggio philosophy is an image of the child as competent, strong, inventive and full of potential - subjects with rights instead of needs.  For the past 20 years, ITP has offered opportunities for others interested in supporting the potential in children to collaborate, formulate personal interpretations, hypotheses and ideas about teaching, learning and living.” 

Don’t miss this opportunity on Saturday, October 24 from 9am to 3pm at Old Firehouse School’s Mill Valley campus, located at 10 Olive Street in Mill Valley, CA.
