How do we create an early years education and pedagogy that first starts with children’s perspectives, second relates to cultural values of families and community and third include the future and societal perspectives of transition to school and the broader community? Is this pure fantasi?

First we will give an introduction about children’s development and how a cultural-historical understanding of development give forundations for prinsiples in a holistic pedagogy and how these principles can be seen as further theorizing of a CREDE pedagogy
