Kindezi: A Distinctively Africentric Perspective on Early Childhood Education. Developmentally Appropriate Practice.
Lowden, Frances Y.
Journal of Early Education and Family Review, v8 n1 p7-12 Sep-Oct 2000
Presents the Kindezian philosophy of early childhood education, a historical developmentally appropriate Africentric worldview. Describes the curriculum as predating Western curriculum development by centuries. Maintains that Kindezi affords children the possibility to develop their full potential and that it provides a framework on which to respond to educational needs of African children and the descendants of the African diaspora.
