This blog post shares the content of my monthly newsletter and conversations on LinkedIn with my network of early childhood education professionals.

Stop, Step Back, Observe: Can You See Them?

How much sensory-motor and cognitive competence is involved in drinking from a fountain at the age of 2, 3, or 4?

How many discoveries happen while approaching that experience and getting familiar with it through repetition?

How many discoveries, learning blocks, and new experiences do children gain while “repeating” a simple action?

Enjoy children’s process of learning how to drink from a fountain.

You don’t need to teach children how to drink, walk, wash hands, or jump. Why? Because children need to learn how to learn.

Please share with your educators.
Thank you.

Meet Your Facilitator

Hi, my name is Tommaso Lana.
I’m an educational consultant, facilitator, and founder of Embodied Learning.
I’ve been living and working internationally since 2005 (Germany, Australia, USA). I’m currently based in New York.

I was born in Italy and went to a Montessori school when I was little.
Growing up, I developed a passion for children’s autonomous learning, the experiential learning pedagogies from Northern Europe, and the Reggio Emilia approach.

I support and motivate educators’ teams, school directors, and managers in exploring and appreciating young children’s learning potential through their sensory competence and movement.

My experience spans training educators’ teams for award-winning educational projects (Google Children’s Center, Children’s Center at Caltech), consulting high-end cultural institutions (The Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center), and mentoring managers in large public service systems (Los Angeles Public Library).
