Addressing Challenging Behaviour and Developing Positive Values through the Medium of Story. A Full Day Workshop with Susan Perrow for Teachers, Parents & Health Practitioners. In this workshop, examples, ideas and techniques for writing healing (‘medicinal’) stories will be shared and the therapeutic use of metaphor explored.

About This Organizer

Founded in April 2012, the Alpenglow Community Education Society (ACES) offers inspirational and unique educational programs for children in the Bow Valley.

We currently offer:
·      The Alpenglow School, an alternative program inspired by Waldorf and nature-connection education, offers Kindergarten - Grades 5 in partnership with Canadian Rockies Public Schools. Grade 6 in 2015-16.
·      The Alpenglow Early Childhood Programs, Waldorf-nature-inspired  Playgroups (ages 3-5) and Parent & Toddler programs (2-3 yrs)

Guided by the principles of Waldorf education and nature connection experiences, our programs are designed to match the natural stages of human development and to allow children to build a sense of wonder and thirst for knowledge. Compassion, imagination and creativity are nurtured in our home-like school environment and a strong foundation for future learning and development is established by integrating the arts, academics and nature immersion. We strive to empower children and to guide them to explore their full potential.
