Online Group Coaching

Two new groups commencing January 2022

This program supports educators in transforming and/or deepening their Natural Curiosity teaching practice by providing a safe online space for open conversation, community and collegial friendship. A small group (max 20 educators) will meet monthly to unpack key principles in Natural Curiosity. Coaches will loosely structure workshops sessions with ample time for group discussion, challenging participants to reconsider their pedagogical practice while sharing and learning from one another.
