Three narratives: the sun, the boat and the flag

Janet Robertson

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    These stories take place in the playground at Mia-Mia, a not-for-profit child care centre attached to the Institute of Early Childhood, Macquarie University in NSW, Australia. Much attention has been paid to the aesthetic environment, both indoor and outdoor, to reflect the centre philosophy of education based on relationships. The playground is a garden with both intimate hideaway spaces and larger open ones, shady trees and a wide verandah. The space is used by 38, two to six-year-old children. One day a week, the author, who is normally the two and three-year-olds’ teacher, takes the role of the outdoor teacher.
