    OPEN TO ALL - Counts toward Pikler® pedagogue certification.

    This course will discuss the importance of attentive and respectful physical care in addition to some less well known aspects of the Pikler® pedagogy, such as the child’s developing social behaviour, and the characteristics of respectful communication.

    The course will underline the importance of the quality of daily care/caregiving interactions (nappy changing, dressing, nose wiping etc.) related to children forming their self-image and need for bonding. Participants will observe (analysing video footage of the Pikler® Institute) how infants and toddlers express their needs and how much they learn from the adult during these situations. We shall also discuss the special elements of the parent-child relationship and the relationship between the child and the professional caregiver, educator or nurse.
