During our day with Gunilla we will think with the history of Early Years education in Canada and Gunilla's work in regards to "Quality Childcare," current conditions of our Early Years education, and the possibilities we could work towards learning from different educational projects around the world.
A large portion of the day will be focused on Pedagogical Documentation and its role in cultivating democratic learning cultures through small-group exercises and large-group discussions.
