In early childhood settings we say children’s experiences must reflect the local context. In this preschool in the NT a pool in the playground was as familiar and popular with the children as a sandpit in other settings.
These vignettes ask educators to observe closely and describe what you see- the interactions, the play, the environment and the learning.
Think about questions such as; What was the thing that stood out in the vignette to you? What questions would you like to ask?
These are small snippets in a day and much else would have been happening that is not visible to the viewer. But the aim is to sharpen our observations and thinking about what we see and then to think about how this might inform their planning in their own service.
