    The stories told in this chapter arise from the authors work at Mia-Mia, a not-for-profit child care centre attached to the Institute of Early Childhood, Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. The gaze and its importance in early childhood, as well as the notion of explaining it in the metaphor of glasses, was first presented at a conference (Robertson, 2001). It was influenced strongly by research the author was undertaking at the time exploring the reconceptualisation of education and postmodern theory.
