A Runway Project With The St. Clair College Design Team

 Program Co-ordinator Elaine Chatwood, along with students Luna, Stephen, Elizabeth, Sara and instructor Christy Litster became kindergarten teachers for the day.
Anything is possible when learners unite in play!
Community partnerships that connect us, excite us and inspire us!
Karen Hall of The Windsor Star joins in the fun.
All designers know that a team effort is key to every successful venture.

...meets inspiration!

Team meetings to plan a design project plant the seeds of brainstorming.
Open materials invite creative thinking.
 Patient attention to detail.
Expert advice invites insight and values the learning process.
Fashion from head to toe.

With excited anticipation, the design teams gather in front row seats and await their models who reveal the latest in fashion at our
Kindergarten Runway Project!
With excited anticipation, the models can't wait to walk the runway!
The models walk the runway together for a showstopping finale!
Now it was time to share our excitement and fashion with the rest of the school. 
So off we went on a fashion parade to the school assembly.
There's no black or white about it...
Learning happens in the shades of emerging interests.
Children learn best when we support their interests and follow their lead. 
It is then that their learning is most meaningful and tells the world who they are.
These moments create joyful, life-long learners.
And we just play along.

We extend our thanks to Kathryn Markham-Petro for connecting us with the design team...
and our deep gratitude to Elaine, Christy, Sara, Elizabeth, Luna and Stephen for impacting us with your knowledge and your presence,
which has left a great imprint in the wonderful world of kindergarten.
And to Karen Hall for shining our light for all the community to see!
