In their popular book, From Teaching to Thinking, Ann Pelo and Margie Carter write that “professional learning is not about getting individual teachers up to speed with discreet aspects of their work, nor is it about ensuring that the whole staff is on board with the latest development in the Quality Rating System. Professional learning is focused on bringing teachers, children, families, and administrators together as a research collective – as a community that learns.
Professional learning strengthens the identity of an early childhood program: its touchstone considerations are ‘Who are we as a community?’ and ‘How will we live into our vision?’”
Naturally, children are eager for connective relationships, they are curious, they are thinkers. This foundational text is a pedagogical companion for educators that strengthens their own development as thinkers, researchers, innovators, and constructors of knowledge so that they can pass on this way of being to the children in their care.
