Educators from around the world look at Branches Atelier as a model of the highest level of early childhood education available. They travel from all corners of the globe to attend the lectures and workshops by Patricia Hunter McGrath in which she shares her 20 years of experience working in Reggio inspired environments.
The workshops are designed to support the learning of all educators, from novices to master teachers. Topics include “Intro to Reggio”, material explorations, environment as a third teacher, documentation, and community interactions.
Patricia Hunter McGrath consults locally, nationally and internationally with other schools and educators. The teachers give workshops, mentor other teachers and consult with other schools.
Evening meetings offer parents an opportunity to explore a wide range of topics from parenting issues to current research on human development.

Branches Atelier 2018/2019 Workshop Series:
Observing and Analyzing the Social Structure in Children’s Play
by Jane Broderick, Edd, of East Tennessee State University
Hosted by Branches Atelier
We are thrilled to have Dr. Jane Broderickto come to West LA to share her current research on children’s play. Through video, story and conversation, we will be examining how children use socio-dramatic play to explore the complex issues of power.
During this workshop, teachers will learn many strategies to support and deepen our understanding of children’s play. Together we also will determine who really has the power roles and how are these roles are played out again and again. This workshop will change the way we observe and understand the nuance of play and give us a much deeper understanding of the power of dramatic play to inform children's lives.
