The Autonomous Child

$1,000

Intentionally involving children in making decisions is something that can divide a group. You either find it innately easeful or the mere thought of handing over the reigns, so to speak, is terrifying. For this reason autonomy is often not consistently embedded through the routines and rituals of Early Childhood Education and Care Services.

In The Autonomous Child we take a journey back to our own childhoods to search for clues. Clues that help us understand what our current practices and beliefs are built upon. From here we make some commitments to action around providing the children in your space with increasing amounts of freedom and autonomy.
