Workshop-Getting the Dirt on Mud Day-Janet Berezowecki & Chantel Colli
In this hands on workshop experience, Janet and Chantel will lead participants through the journey to planning, implementing and documenting mud day at their centre. Participants will look at creative ways to introduce the benefits of mud play to their fellow staff, parents and the general community. Participants will have the opportunity to experience exciting mud day activities, explore new ways to use mud and spend time in a mud pie kitchen. We ask participants to bring their inner child, an open mind and clothes suitable for mud play!

Chantel believes that early childhood spaces should be filled with beauty and wonder and that we should replace the “plastics” usually found there with open ended natural materials that encourage children’s creativity and challenges their imaginations. Chantel loves a good book (either adult or children’s), a fast horse, shopping, doing consecutive cartwheels on the grass, colored flats and all things shiny! She is owned and loved by her Jack Russell, Molly and Paint Horse, Forrest. Chantel is the Executive Director of Cartwright and District Early Learning Centre.
