Children are always right, even when we think they are wrong…

Sometimes we, educators, make mistakes…

One day, in our beloved yard, Chrysi got a cart, turned it upside down and tried to climb on it.

Slide1

I hastily said “Chrysi, that’s not right“.  She, however, stepped on it and proudly started playing by turning cart into a slide. The game started and Christos came to claim his turn.

Slide2

All I had to say then was “next please!“. Chrysi’s “wrong” use of the cart turned out to be the right game!

Kindergarten kids set up their class

In our school children rights are much respected!

So, teachers do not arrange class for elder kids – children do! They come first day in school to find out a mess, waiting for them to sort it out…
