Monthly Musing - January 2023

January 27, 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 Well-Being and the facet of Emotional Health and Positive Identities.

"How do people and policies at your centre honour children’s initiatives through thoughtful planning, documentation, and/or responses? Think about how your centre builds upon children’s interests." (Flight, p. 93)
