The Competent Child

November 9, 2021

See the Child as Competent and Capable

The Reggio Emilia approach and the BC Early Learning Framework encourage educators to see the child with a “rich” lens: one that sees the child as competent and capable.

Thinking of the child as capable can be easy, but putting this perspective into daily practice – working with different populations of children can be challenging.

Sharing examples from our own lived experiences at Frog Hollow, we will dive deep into the concept of the Competent Child as Malaguzzi introduced to us – and think about our daily practice with children through this lens.

Study Groups

Study Groups are opportunities for educators to sit with an inquiry or a long-term project and study it in depth. The facilitated small group discussions will help educators to expand their understanding of how long-term projects take form and what they could, as educators, be noticing to support this process.

Study groups are facilitated by Maryam Naddaf.

Check the Study Groups page for more information.

ECE educators, elementary school teachers, principals, school district staff, childcare directors, school age care educators, students, parents
