Curious Adults, Curious Children - Part 3


London ReFocus Open Meeting

Continuing our theme ‘Curious Adults, Curious Children’, This open meeting will give a further chance to hear different perspectives on democracy in early childhood education, both in theory and practice focusing on:

  • What is democracy?
  • How can democracy manifest itself in early childhood education?

Diana will share theory and research by using the voices and different perspectives of educators on the necessary conditions for democratic practices in the early years.

Cath with Nisha will share Rowland Hill’s project: ‘Framing the learning: a democratic exploration using photography and film with young children and their families ’.

As Carlina Rinaldi states in ‘In Dialogue with Reggio Emilia’
“…we must not forget how closely the school is related to the society in which it is situated’. ‘There is the recurring question of whether the school is limited to transmitting culture or can be (aspire to) a place where culture is constructed and democracy is lived”.
