Gratitude in Early Childhood Education:
Exploring the potential for flourishing relationships and resilient leadership
Contemporary research has demonstrated that greater attention to gratitude has the potential to amplify the good in our lives and have a positive impact on both our cognitive processes and relationships. Gratitude has an imperative force that motivates us to want to give back out of acknowledgment for what we receive and thereby awakens our creative thinking and sense of interconnectedness. By drawing on case studies in the field of education, this presentation will explore practical ways in which gratitude can be enacted to enable flourishing relationships in the Early Childhood setting.
Dr. Megan Gibson and Dr. Kerry Howells
Gratitude as a Practice:
New ways for early childhood leaders to think about their work
This workshop will deepen leaders’ understandings of gratitude as a practice and enable authentic connections with their work in early childhood. Kerry and Megan will work with you to draw on both understandings of leadership within the early childhood context and make links to gratitude as a way to transform ways of working. Kerry will build on her keynote and together with Megan’s experience and knowledge of leadership will apply these understandings to early childhood contexts. Together Kerry and Megan will guide, support and gently provoke you re-consider your approach to your work in early childhood, through engaging with gratitude as a practice.

Nature as a tool for learning, living and leading
Current studies identify nature as providing one of the most reliable boosts for physical and mental well-being. Nature assists in restoring mental fatigue, relieve stress, improves concentration, sharpens thinking and enhances creativity.
Gowrie Training will build on their previous success of integrating nature and its elements into individual and group professional learning when they facilitate this workshop.
This collaborative and interactive workshop will take place on the stunning Mt. Wellington (kunanyi) using the power of nature to provoke your thinking and influence your practice as a leader.
