Narratives of Everyday Spirituality: Pedagogical Perspectives from Three Early Childhood Settings in Aotearoa New Zealand

Available from: Springer Link

Book Title: International Handbook of Education for Spirituality, Care and Wellbeing

Pages: 873-890

Abstract/Notes: Early childhood settings in Aotearoa New Zealand are informed by an internationally recognised curriculum, Te Whāriki (Ministry of Education, 1996). This whāriki, or woven mat, includes references to the spiritual; the principle of kotahitanga/holistic development intersects with the strand of mana atua/wellbeing. Qualitative case study research in a Montessori casa, a private preschool, and a Steiner kindergarten found the concept “everyday spirituality” illuminating. Three themes were identified: spiritual withness, spiritual in-betweeness and spiritual elsewhere. These relational spaces are proposed as a way of reconceptualising holistic approaches to pedagogy and wellbeing in early childhood educational contexts.

The Construction of Early Childhood Teachers' Professional Identities, Then and Now

Available from: SAGE Journals

Publication: Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, vol. 33, no. 3

Abstract/Notes: This paper explore the ideas of teacher educator Lillian de Lissa, who established the Kindergarten Training College in Adelaide in 1907 and spent the following 40 years in early childhood teacher education in Australia and the United Kingdom. I argue that de Lissa's enduring concern was the construction of early childhood teachers' professional identities. To this end, the curriculum, teaching methods and culture of the training colleges focused on the ‘all round development’ of the pre-service teacher— that is her head, heart and hand. These historical understandings are used to discuss early childhood teachers' professional identities in contemporary times.
