“What would our practice look like if we lifted up the daily chores of caring as honorable rituals and essential educational practices?” Caring is not only a physical task – caring requires an attitude and a relationship. In routines such as washing and dressing, feeding and comforting, we transform daily rituals through care relationships into opportunities for teaching and learning. The child is learning every moment and learning the deepest lessons through the caring exchange.
Text from author Carol Garboden Murray’s book Illuminating Care: The Pedagogy and Practice of Care in Early Childhood Communities.
We are excited to have you join us as we explore the powerful book, Illuminating Care by Carol Garboden Murray. Together we’ll engage in collaborative dialogue, discussions, and critical reflection of our current practice. We’ll explore what it is that author Ms. Murray’s states: “new way of thinking about care and incorporating it into the heart of our pedagogy.”
This Community of Practice is for anyone working with children who is looking for new ways to inspire learning and create a community within early childhood education.
