On behalf of the Founders and Members of the Lisa Maria Foundation, we are writing to invite you to participate in a seminar being organised by the Foundation on Friday 23rd November 2018. The seminar, entitled THE ‘CHILD’ IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, is being held at the ‘Olympia Suite’ Dolmen Hotel, Qawra between 09:00 and 13.00. Her Excellency, the President of Malta will open the seminar. The Hon. Minister for Education and Employment will also address participants. Registration starts at 08.30 and arrangements for free parking, on a first come first served basis will be offered to participants. Refreshments and a light lunch will be available at the end of the seminar.
The seminar will focus on the importance of listening to young children and ensuring their perspectives are taken into consideration in decision-making processes, especially in aspects which have a direct impact on their wellbeing. In addition to a key-note presentation by Prof Noirin Hayes, work-shops will be organised to give participants the opportunity to discuss young children’s meaningful engagement and participation. A full programme of the seminar will be circulated closer to the date.
