Online Group Coaching

Commencing January 2023!

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 workshop sessions with ample time for group discussion, challenging participants to reconsider their pedagogical practice while sharing and learning from one another.
