Kimberley Crisp returns to Tauranga for ‘Let’s Get Gritty’ a 1-day workshop for Teachers & Parents in March 2020

Kimberley Crisp is coming back to the Bay of Plenty – Yay.

Get the diary out and circle Sunday 15 March 2020 and join us for this SELL OUT workshop in the Bay of Plenty:

We’ll provide a delicious feast of a lunch, in a warm venue, with an opportunity to share learning and experience with like-hearted people.
Growing resilience through ‘getting gritty’. Passion plus perseverance equals GRIT! What is the role of the adult in getting gritty? What role does the environment play in growing GRIT? As a team how can you model GRIT and allow children to grow GRIT? What are the benefits of GRIT growth? What conditions allow GRIT to flourish.
I have a passion for creatively inspiring adults in all aspects of their ‘being’ with children. In my extensive experience of facilitating, I apply a hands on approach and clever use of analogy, which provides experiential learning for the participants. I have a distinctive gift in translating new concepts into simple and memorable learning. I love quotes and I always have one ‘up my sleeves’.
From working as a trained teacher (B.Ed (Tchng) ECE) in a range of early childhood services, and through adult teaching, I have grown to see that ultimately it is ‘how’ adults are with themselves that is pivotal in ‘how’ they are with young children.
My early childhood journey took me to the Pikler Institute in Budapest, Hungary four times to attend the Summer Course and also the Advanced Level Courses on the Piklerian Approach of Early Childhood Education. This fuelled my desire to bring these profound principles and practices to as many adults as possible.

Believing that every moment can be a learning experience, I seek insight and inspiration and I passionately believe in the teachers I work with.


The Professional Development Programmes I offer deepen teacher’s knowledge, experience and awareness. They focus on our central beliefs that infants and young children are free and equal human beings who need time, space and the right environment in which they naturally unfold, and in which they develop a healthy sense of who they are as individuals and valued members of our society.
wild & grace media|events have been bringing Teachers to the Bay for over 10 years such as Pennie Brownlee, Celia Hogan and the wondrous Kimberley Crisp (from The Nest Private Kindergarten) in Hawkes Bay.
“I did Kimberly’s “Lead from the heart” course and I found her fun to learn from and inspirational. The course content was relevant and challenged my philosophy and way of thinking. Kimberly is an interesting speaker, genuine and authentic. I highly recommend her as a professional development facilitator.” – R.R
