In this edition of Every Child magazine, Dr Cindy Blackstock details how Canada’s First Nations children fought the Canadian government for social justice and won; Rose Young deconstructs the planning cycle and discusses how to truly put it into everyday practice; Rachel Ho asks how much adult intervention do children really need? And Rowena Muir discusses how children’s fascination with the trees at Manuka Childcare Centre has grown into the curriculum.
A new section in the magazine titled Perspectives On gives two opposing opinions from childcare professionals about group times in childcare settings; and a new pace is created in Virginia Artinian’s article about the importance of rest and relaxation for educators, where she encourages educators to think about creating space for their own wellness in their daily and weekly routines.
