Share new perspectives on how to nurture the emergence of moral values in the young child

This Peer Learning Activity (PLA) that will take place in Bucharest, Romania, February 10-11,  2020, led by ISSA Members Neohumanist Education Association (Romania) and Zonnelicht Kindergarten (Netherlands). This is an exchange of experience specifically designed for ISSA members, who can apply for funding that will cover their participation. 

Exploring the  emergence of morality:

  • If we see the child as a competent learner, how does this shift our understanding and practice of moral education?
  • Is moral education a necessity in the modern world?
  • Is morality a socially imposed construct, or inherent to human nature? If inherent, what are the educational implications?
  • How can educators help children to develop and listen to their moral compass?

In this Peer Learning Experience, early childhood education experts and leaders will meet to discuss and reflect on best practices in supporting young children to develop their own inner compass of moral values. Organizers will share approaches that early childhood educators can use to support the emergence of the self and intrinsic moral values.

For ISSA Members: Travel costs up to 250 euros, and accommodation for 3 nights in Bucharest and meals during the meeting will be covered for members of the ISSA Network.

For others: There are also a limited number of places available to people from outside of the ISSA network, or from the local Romanian educational community, but they will have to cover their own expenses.
