Welcome to an immersive co-adventure: education done with children, not to them.
Children are magic. They live in a world that overspills with exploration, connections, dreams and imagination. They are trying to share this world with us all the time, because they want us to step through the door that leads there and join them in the magic. Once upon a time we lived in that magic world. But now we are 'grown up' and many of us have perhaps forgotten the magic or, if we are educators, feel held back by expectations of curriculum and time pressures. Yet the door still stands there, waiting for us to have the courage to take those first steps and then head deeper and further into the joy of childhood.
It's this rich landscape of childhood that I have found myself adventuring in ever since I heard the words 'Can I go and play now?' from children's mouths which jolted me to seek the door. Having found it, I discovered that education can be an immersive adventure, and it's one that I am still on with so much yet to see and unearth. I'd like to invite you to join me, to come and share in the magic of children too.
The place that lies beyond the door has a name. It is called the World of Good Things and if in your heart you want to go there, then why not join me on a great big co-adventure? I can support you in your journey with my philosophy of 'co-play' and the 3Ms as well as showing you the 'map' of Adventure Island, Drawing Club, Play Projects, The Message Centre and all the other things that live in the World of Good Things - its scope is unlimited and waiting there are the joy and possibility that you have been seeking.
Childhood doesn't have to become a lost word.
It's time to step in to The World of Good Things...
