Introductory Workshop

Caring well for the very young child: how the Pikler approach can help us. 

Dorothy Marlen - Early Childhood Trainer & Consultant

Crowndale Centre, Camden, London

Of relevance to all early childhood practitioners interested in finding out more about the Pikler approach to the care of infants and young children. 

This interactive workshop will introduce you to two of Emmi Pikler’s main principles and how they are intrinsically interconnected: 

  • Creating co-operative partnership with small children through mindful, respectful caregiving

  • The importance of self-initiated free movement in infants and the natural progression of motor development 

The workshop will include video footage, experiments and time for discussion. This is an introductory workshop: further, more in-depth training on these topics is available through the Pikler UK Association.
