This session will discuss the ways early childhood educators can co-construct meaningful and effective learning environments with young children. The relevance of indoor play and outdoor play in natural settings will also be addressed. Children’s rights, in relation to their views on their learning, and their ability to be change-makers on the ways early childhood curriculum is delivered in both Canadian and international settings, will also be shared.
