Making visible the competencies of children and the work of
Early Childhood Educators
Viewers will be invited to contribute their understandings by leaving “traces” on an interactive art installment.
When you look at a child, we want you to stop and listen deeply to:

• What children know

• How children are researching what they do not know

• How children integrate that research into new learning

• The many ways children communicate.
“The child is a democratic institution, is understood as a competent citizen, an expert in his or her own life, having opinions that are worth listening to and having the right and competence to participate in collective decision making.”

Dahlberg and Moss, Ethics and Politics in Early Childhood Education, 2005
