Beginning the Journey: The Project Approach with Toddlers
Kogan, Yvonne; Pin, Josefina
Early Childhood Research & Practice, v11 n1 Spr 2009
Some features of project work are of value for toddlers, while others are best left until children are older. This article shares the process through which teachers and administrators at a private school in Mexico City gained awareness of the importance of listening, observing, and documenting children's activities to determine how to adapt features of the Project Approach to meet the needs and interests of toddlers. This adaptation of project work, called "project practice", engaged toddlers in developmentally appropriate activities that involved exploration, representation, and the search for understanding.
