Toni & Robin Christie
Toni and Robin Christie founded Childspace Early Learning Centres and subsequently the Childspace Early Childhood Institute in Wellington, New Zealand. They began their careers in early childhood with a small centre in their own home and have both taught early childhood for various ages and contexts.
Currently their work involves teaching adults about the importance of the early years. Toni and Robin have written books and resources, they publish a quarterly magazine, hold annual conferences, design and build environments for children, inspire early childhood practitioners through their keynote and workshop presentations, and they love their jobs!
So what? What next?
We will all have been treated to three days of challenging the status quo, learning from each other, and much laughter and growth throughout the conference. As Lillian Katz would say – so what? In this closing keynote, Toni and Robin will delve into what this all means for our tamariki and our profession and where we are headed next.
