Continued Professional Development Opportunity for
Early Childhood Educators

Where: Draíocht, Blanchardstown
When:  Sunday 20th of October 2019, 10am – 4pm

Artist Lucy Hill will introduce participating educators to ways of using contemporary artworks as a starting point for designing bespoke early years arts activities for young children that take into account the Aistear curriculum, children’s highly specific needs and likes, and the spaces available in early years settings.

During the day Lucy will guide the group on an exploration of Estuary - an exhibition featuring some of the artworks within Fingal County Council’s Public Art Collection, to generate ideas for art activities designed for children. This will be a practical, messy and highly enjoyable day where you will collaborate with other professional early childhood educators to inspire and extend your confidence and abilities for providing arts activities for children, from early years to after school clubs.

Calling Musicians interested in developing or establishing a practice in Early Years Music

The four Dublin Local Authorities are collaborating to offer professional musicians an opportunity to develop their skills and understanding of music in the early years. There are three experiential CPD workshops to choose from and musicians can attend more than one.

Each CPD workshop offers a follow up opportunity to observe, and in some instances assist, an early years music specialist working in context with early years children. The four local authorities are offering a stipend to musicians selected to participate.
