β€œWhat children learn does not follow as an automatic result from what is taught, rather, it is in large part due to the children’s own doing, as a consequence of their activities and our resources.” Loris Malaguzzi The Hundred Languages of Children quoted from:

Where did three weeks go ????? I’ll bet all of the toddlers have been enjoying the sunshine and water play !!!! β˜€οΈ 🌞 πŸ’¦ 🌊 πŸ’§ πŸ“Έ: @joannebabalis

Our mud kitchen has inspired so much play for the toddlers this summer !! πŸ“Έ: @joannebabalis Sebby made some new friends this week!! @apolicaro your middle son is also in this photo that I took.

Toddlers creating collaboratively on a shower curtain with paint and pastels ! πŸ“Έ: @joannebabalis

One of my favourite toddler experiences! I wrapped bubble wrap around paint rollers and taped bubble wrap to the children's feet. They had a blast creating collaborative art on calico fabric. The children were very active, jumping and singing as they worked and adding their own contributions like mark making with toy cars and a scooter! Swipe left to see more! 🎨 - Jenni

A beautiful, inspiring and comprehensive book for anyone interested in the theory and philosophy of loose parts. All the materials are beautifully photographed and the author explains how infants and toddlers explore and investigate loose parts in their play. The book is full of ideas for provocations in both indoor and outdoor learning environments with an emphasis on aesthetics 🌹 I really appreciate the guidance on tried and tested loose parts for such a precious age group and the justification for offering materials children absolutely love by uncovering their unlimited learning potential!!

"It is in playing, and only in playing, that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self" - D.W. Winnicott (British pediatrician)

β€œOur challenge isn’t so much to teach children about the natural world, but to find ways to nurture and sustain the instinctive connections they already carry.” β€” Terry Krautwurst
It's so lovely to see children involved in nature play. I wonder what the ideas were behind these toddler's creations πŸ€”πŸŒΏ

Love the inclusion of various art mediums; paint, crayons, pencils, tissue paper, glue and playdough. All offered to explore an interest in sunflowers and Van Gogh. So many ways for a toddler to represent ideas and practice skills. Thank you for sharing πŸ“Έ@sparkteachlearn !!!

β€œThe infant-toddler centres and preschools are places of living together between generations. They are public common spaces where the multitudes aim to become a community of people growing together with a strong sense of the future, a strong idea of participation, of living together, of taking care, one for others. We believe that caring generates care; attention generates attention; a child receiving trust will trust.” Graziano Delrio, β€œThe Hundred Languages of Children” p. 84 πŸ“·: @joannebabalis We are pleased to announce our next two week Reggio inspired focus; toddler experiences. We look forward to seeing all of your wonderful work with toddlers. For the following two weeks share your photos to the #ctinquiry and #cti_toddlerexperiences.
