Monthly Musing - February 2023

February 24, 2023

In response to being asked about how to go deeper with one’s practice with children, we offer these monthly musings as invitations for you. You might take the invitation up

  • as an individual or with your team.
  • at monthly staff meetings.
  • to provoke conversations when feeling stuck.

The opportunities are endless.

We will pose these musings monthly, but use them as you feel moved to. You might spend more than a month with one question. Or, you might revisit a question at a later time. Each time you visit or revisit a question, new possibilities emerge.

This month's musing comes from the holistic play-based goal of Play and Playfulness and the facet of Imagination and Creativity.

"How do you support and value the worlds and fantasies that children create? Think about ways in which fantasy and imagination can be extended for children and documented to illustrate their value." (Flight, p. 99)
