This exhibit offered the Prince George community a glimpse into how children and educators, alongside an ECPN pedagogist, at a local child care centre, reimagine curriculum as an ongoing process that values listening and collaboration.
Through months of observation and conversation, the educators noticed the children's fascination with the spiders and webs in the centre's backyard. The educators and pedagogist created opportunities for the children to slow down and pay attention to their surroundings while working together to weave a collective web in the classroom. This exhibit showcases the process and results of their collaborative efforts.
