When you teach from the heart, it requires your full energy and focus. If you are finding there are days that are taking more than you can give, this workshop is for you. We provide practical strategies for managing stress and overwhelm. Identifying what helps us thrive instead of just cope. A practical approach to self-care that can fit into the already busy lives that most ECE teachers have!
Teacher burnout and turnover is at an all-time high. We also know children in New Zealand are experiencing high rates of anxiety and stress. So how do we teach the importance of self-care, when we aren’t experiencing it ourselves? Come and join us as we share refreshments, tools, resources and inspiration.

"Brilliant talk. So interesting and all of what was said makes perfect sense. Highly recommend"
"I learned so much from the presentation! Thank you. I am much more relaxed when it meal time now and my kids have become much easier to feed."
"I’m a huge fan of The Food Tree and their approach to mindful eating practices with children. They’re informative, knowledgeable, helpful and gentle. I’ve been to a few of their workshops now, and each time I come away with new tools on how to create a positive experience for children at meal times."
