A section for parents
The intention of this section is to help you
- Look for a preschool/school
- To help you explore your vision and expectations
- In how to know what you might be looking for
- In what to expect
- To find ways to support the educators to develop their work with your children
And to help educators become more determined, informed and connected: your reflections and questions can help enormously all those centres and educators who are working hard to create new and different learning spaces for children, in ways that they perhaps haven’t been schooled themselves – remember that it is difficult for them, and they are being brave, and thinking hard about what to do!”
Below are some questions which we are currently using as a basis of discussions to help us develop this section. If you would like to join in this discussion, please get in touch (or if you would like to simply write in with your thoughts, please do, It will be a great help.
For parents who are attending a preschool in the network
For any parent (e.g. if you are seeking educational places for your children)
Ongoing Dialogues ...
We have also researched past studies such as 'The School I'd Like', and hope to publish extracts of some.
We now have an ongoing 'Parents in Dialogue' group which is also collecting and responding to our invitation. They are focussed on how to make the strongest public case for 'education fit for children.'
