    Abstract

    This chapter is based on conversations that were held to plan a presentation at a national conference. The power of the conversations inspired the authors to present them to conference participants as a Readers’ Theatre. At the time of the conference Hammersley, Schillert and Stanke were working together in a child care centre when Fleet and Patterson (colleagues from Macquarie University) invited them to share their experiences of pedagogical documentation. The centre was a community-based long day care centre for children from birth to five, located in a predominately white, middle-class suburb of a regional area in New South Wales. The centre was well-known for exploring ideas emerging from Reggio Emilia.
