In spite of the threats and troubles of all kinds that we are facing, our beloved early childhood movement keeps growing and growing all around the world. This is for sure very good news! There are so many nuances in this big palette, so many cultures, languages, traditions, so many social and political situations…the world is really diverse! How can we open ourselves for all the new impulses that are blossoming in every single part of the world? Do we deeply know each other? How is the landscape, weather, food, or social fabric? How can we create our different festivals from our shared universal essence?
The time has come to turn ourselves to our fellow human beings with an open mind and open hearts to see what each of us has to give to the other. Through a little sample of experiences, we invite you to enjoy and reflect on the celebration of the Festivals, which is such an important part of the life of the little child.
We also want to present the newly born World Association for Puppetry and Storytelling Arts, which we are sure will be a wonderful impulse to develop Puppetry for children in our kindergartens and homes.
The Care 1 Group keeps on working for the earliest years of childhood. Since the conference had to be postponed, 5 new online events have been created: don’t miss this information, as these events will take place very soon, in addition to the international conferences described in the newsletter.
We hope you will enjoy reading and sharing this issue with your colleagues, parents and friends.
Wishing you all the best,
