Timetable: 9.30 a.m.-1.30 p.m.; 2.30-6.30 p.m.
This training comes from the experience of the European project “ALICE”, which is based on the educational potential of parents and relatives, or volunteers, from some simple creative activities that can be carried out with children.
During 6 days participants will learn about and experience the power of some creative languages (such as literature or music) to create a moment of communication and creation with children, and learn how each and everyone, without being necessarily an artist or a professional educator, can take advantage of such moments to create an educational relationship with the very young. At the same time, these experiences will give the adults an increased confidence in their ability to educate, and an awareness of the means that daily life offers to help carry out these vital function: educating, learning.
In the presence (40 hours spread over six consecutive days Monday-Saturday).
Each session in the presence (6 sessions of 8 hours each) will be divided into a theoretical introduction and an operational part (group interactions, individual reflections, exercises, moments of exchange and dialogue, simulations)
