I appreciate Francis wholeheartedly, but I don't think the ece field jumps from one to the other but that we incorporate the "good, appropriate, well- developed early childhood curriculum - with appropriate activities and experiences." as Francis points out. We save and renew the best of past from Fröbel, Montessori, Gerber, to Gardner and Gopnik. Children need our thoughtful best and Exchange, ROW, and the teachers who are leaning into this add to the stream of consciousness. The children keep us in the present respecting and responding to them with CARE is the message.
I'd like to suggest "STREAM'N" - the N is to include nature. As we are aware, the natural world is vital to children's physical, social, and emotional development. We can challenge ourselves to think of how to include STREAM activities and experiences in nature and with nature.
This article proves what I have always argued about STEM: its nothing new; its a central part of a good, appropriate, well- developed early childhood curriculum - with appropriate activities and experiences. Its rather upsetting how our field jumps from one "fashionable trend" to another. It suggests that we really don't know what we are doing!!!!
