Monthly Musings- May 2024

May 27, 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 Seeking (children)

Think about children’s seeking. 

In what ways do children express their seeking in the outdoors or indoors? What do you learn about children by noticing their seeking?

In what ways can you offer the children materials and spaces to nurture their disposition to seek?
