During our Thursday and Friday Two-Day Intensive Event, Zsuzsa will share with us Piklerian ideas of the role of free movement, free play and care in a child’s social growth and well-being. She will use videos from the Pikler Day Care for participants to analyze and discuss. We will consider together what responsive and thoughtful care for infants and toddlers might mean.
Zsuzsa Libertiny – Pikler pedagogue. Executive pedagogue of the Pikler Day-Care Center, President of the Pikler-Lóczy Association Hungary, Zsuzsa Libertiny became closely acquainted with the Piklerian ideas with the birth of her first child in 1994.
