Supporting early childhood education professionals worldwide
in their efforts to craft thriving environments for children and adults.
You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion, or challenge the ideology of a violet.

"We have a tradition at our staff meetings that we call 'Celebrating Successes,'" writes Nancy Rosenow in her article, 'The Impact of Sensory Integration on Behavior: Discovering Our Best Selves,' in the Beginnings Workshop Book, Behavior.
"Every week we tell each other stories of those magic moments when the joy of learning feels almost tangible. Recently a teacher described being so engaged with the children in creating a group dance that no one wanted the experience to end. Another told about children working outdoors who carefully and persistently experimented with willow until they figured out how to balance branches together to create a hut, literally jumping for joy when their structure stood on its own.
"Magic moments like these do not just happen, especially in classrooms like ours that include many children with sensory integration challenges. It takes planning and thought and more than a little faith in the power of discovery to create a learning environment that helps both children and adults find their best selves."
