A Curriculum Framework for Reflective Teachers

Early childhood leaders Deb Curtis and Margie Carter have set the standard for creating and planning curriculum for young people by providing a state-of-the art model for child-centred, relationship-based teaching.

Combining in-depth theoretical principles with extensive practical applications, Learning Together with Young Children will:

inspire teachers to create a classroom culture that welcomes and nourishes children and families

help teachers choose materials and build environments that encourage imaginative play and exploration

help teachers support childrens connections with each other as they learn to represent their ideas

show teachers how, through thoughtful documentation, to reflect children’s ideas back to them

Learning Together with Young Children will help teachers reflect on their own professional influences and approach to teaching young children. They will learn to use multiple ways – stories, songs, art, and drama – to foster each child’s expression of his or her unique developmental journey.
