Monthly Musings- April 2024

April 24, 2024

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.

I/we are Playing and Playful (educator) 

Think about your role as an active co-participant in children's play. 

In what ways do you follow the children’s play ideas? How does your engagement alongside their play expand your understanding of them? 

In what ways do you share your understanding of children’s play with families and other educators?
