Cowan House inspires an awareness of wonder.

An inspiring ECD (Early Childhood Development) was hosted at Cowan House recently.
More than 450 delegates from around the country, and as far afield as New York, came together to share, explore, challenge and be inspired by 29 focus workshops and 4 outstanding plenary session speakers. The conference theme, ‘Aware of Wonder’, provided delegates with inspiration to break out of their boxes of conformity as they return to their schools to focus on what is truly important and meaningful for children in their formative years. And, despite popular belief, the answers are not as complicated as they may seem; simply returning to less cluttered, less structured and less frenetic days would be a great starting point for all teachers and parents.
