Today we introduced some documentation to the children. We showed them a panel highlighting relationships and a 'book' about loose parts. Parents are invited to browse documentation (alone or with your child) during the morning drop-off. Throughout the year we will continue to update/change documentation. At this early stage, not all children are represented yet, but will be eventually.
