Supporting Child Participation in the Early Years of Education
Sturges, Marion
Journal of Education and Educational Development, v2 n1 p17-29 Jun 2015
This paper aims to contribute to conversations around child participation within early childhood settings in Australia. Ethnographic approach was used for this study to explore child participatory workshops in Early Childhood Centers. The center in which this study took place was chosen as one of the sites of analysis for a broader PhD research project. Data were collected at the Early Childhood site using a variety of collection tools deemed child friendly amongst educators who conducted participatory workshops. By examining the pedagogical actions of the center, this paper explores six of their practices which support child participation. The findings provide practical applications of examples of practices which may be adopted by early childhood educators.
