We think that these ideas of participation can be embraced from an early childhood perspective. The children at Albany Kindergarten are increasingly engaged as researchers, planners, teachers, decision makers and advocates in their day to day learning with the world.
Such connections with the wider community are things that we wish to foster here at Albany Kindergarten. We know that when people join together and work for a common cause that a sense of commitment to enhance the wellbeing of others is fostered.
We see such values of ‘paying it forward’ and generating kindness as things that we want our children here at Albany Kindergarten to consider in their practices with people, places and things.
We are really interested to hear your ideas around this. How might we offer kindness to others in the wider community?
