Co-author of 'Sacred Urge to Play' visiting Early Childhood Education expert Kimberley Crisp is coming to Tauranga..

An inspiring educational day to remember + delicious food + like-hearted people.

We'd love you to join us...for this beautiful day of Professional and Personal Development, aimed at Teachers, Parents, Grandparents, Educarers, Education Support workers and people working with, and playing alongside tamariki/young people. We have two workshops on offer...

Harmony Begins In the Heart addresses 'Behaviour Management' and/or The Richness of Rituals about creating rituals to support resilience and ease anxiety.

Wild & grace media|events have brought Kimberley back after a sell out workshop in 2019.

"Honestly, once you meet Kimberley you will wonder how you got to this point in your life without her influence. Kimberly is the most genuine, passionate and inspirational teacher that I have been blessed to have crossed paths with. I highly recommend her professional development courses and teachings." - M. O’B

“I still feel completely heart-full and inspired after yesterday's workshop. And the food, wow. Emily, it was just sensational!"

Harmony Begins In the Heart - Sunday 6 September
Ask any teacher what they would like to manage more confidently, their response is often conflict, behaviour management, positive guidance. Come along to this workshop and see how you can make the leap from reaction to positive response when dealing with disputes. We have techniques yet still dread conflict. Emmi Pikler has often said 'it’s not just about technique but how we are within ourselves."

We will explore proven techniques, challenge our perceptions around conflict, but most importantly we will take a closer look at how we are within ourselves in conflict situations. In understanding the importance of conflict we can embrace it and grow, rather than avoid it. Feel confident in conflict situations. Create Harmony, consistency and coherence in your team and establish and maintain a healthy ‘emotional hygiene’ for all.

"I believe that above any qualification, KINDNESS is critical when working with children. They may forget what they did but they will never forget 'how' they were treated. And we don't know how things are for them out of our environments, but if we can do our bit...then when they need extra love + kindness they can 'withdraw' some that has been deposited. - Kimberley Crisp"

The Richness of Rituals - Saturday 5 September
This workshop will explore the next level needed when creating Rituals. We will focus on the role of the teacher within Rituals and the importance of being prepared and present. We will link rituals to biology and see how resilience and grit is underpinned by Rituals. The importance of a ‘team approach‘ is vital and Kimberley will share her gems and pearls of wisdom from her 10 years of growing Rituals at The Nest.

"When the infant is unsure
She falls into the arms of her caregiver
When the independent child is unsure,
She falls into the 'arms' of the ritual*
* with its predictable rhythm. - Kimberley Crisp"

Kimberley Crisp
From working as a trained teacher (B.Ed (Tchng) ECE) in a range of early childhood services, and through adult teaching, I have grown to see that ultimately it is ‘how’ adults are with themselves that is pivotal in ‘how’ they are with young children.

My early childhood journey took me to the Pikler Institute in Budapest, Hungary four times to attend the Summer Course and also the Advanced Level Courses on the Piklerian Approach of Early Childhood Education.

Apart from delivering Professional Development opportunities, Kimberley works at ‘The Nest Kindergarten’ in Hawkes Bay.

Wild & Grace
wild & grace media|events have been bringing Teachers to the Bay for over 10 years such as Pennie Brownlee, Celia Hogan and the wondrous Kimberley Crisp.

"The more our children are treated with this deep care, the more they will treat others with care and kindness - Kimberley Crisp"
