Visit Anji - April 8 to 16, 2017
Seven Day, Eight Night All-Inclusive Study Tour
Join us as we visit the schools of Anji. Observe the practice of Anji Play at its source. Learn from local peers and communities. Meet colleagues from across the globe. Deepen your understanding of the Anji Play educational philosophy and connect with a global community of Anji Play practitioners during this week-long immersive program.
The Study Tour program includes daily visits to Anji’s kindergartens that serve children ages 3 to 6, seminars and dialogues with Anji’s early educators, and facilitated discussions with fellow participants to share experiences and insights.
We will visit kindergartens across the county, ranging from large programs (500+ children) in small urban areas to smaller programs (less than 10 children) in rural villages. We will have extended time to observe the practice of Anji Play and learn from and with children at the schools we visit. You will have the chance to build connections with colleagues who share a commitment to love, risk, joy, engagement and reflection in the lives of young children.
Above all, we will have the chance to experience how the educational practice of Anji Play grows from love and how children, schools, families and communities embrace the right to True Play creatively, constructively, and joyfully.
