Our young children are constantly asking questions. They do this for information, to clarify, to connect, to fill silence - for a huge host of reasons. Somewhere down the track we lose that tendency and as adults we don't seem to question things nearly enough.
One of our strengths at Little Earth is that we are deeply reflective.
Not only are we committed to our own personal growth as teachers, but to our collective growth as a remarkable preschool. The danger in doing things well is becoming complacent, and so it is essential that we continue to question what we do. As Grace Hopper puts it, "the most dangerous phrase in [our] language is 'we've always done it this way'"!
