Cultivating and respecting the inner lives of children can be challenging. While early childhood educators want to support children’s natural curiosity and wisdom, they must grapple with societal taboos round discussions of sensitive topics. In this session educators share their experiences with curricula and family engagement that contribute to the development of children’s inner resilience, competence and a collaborative spirit of inquiry.
