This is a story of transformation set within a background of everydayness.
From the very first days that children and families enter into a relationship with Halifax St Children’s Centre and Preschool they also enter into a relationship with food that is particular to our site and that has become significant within our culture
We have been led to rethink, reconstruct and recreate our reality and that of our babies and toddlers in order to uphold their rights as citizens. These rights include full participation within the many decisions that shape every aspect of the rich rituals and routines around the sharing of food. This has resulted in a cultural transformation in attitudes, organisation, documentation and the ways both time and space are perceived, used and valued as extraordinary learning opportunities.
At the completion of the presentation, you will have an understanding of the Reggio Emilia education principles including:
- Learning as a process of individual and group construction
- Educational research
