Innately curious, children are inquirers from birth, constantly researching as they pursue connections and meaning. Early childhood educators are charged with a profound responsibility to harness children’s natural inclination to question and research while introducing them to processes they will build on throughout their lives as increasingly sophisticated inquirers. Particularly in times of exponential change and global complexity, today’s learners will need to capitalise on these skills and dispositions like no generation before them.
Edited by Rebecca Duncan, Journeys of Inquiry showcases diverse case studies of early childhood inquiry from 15 Western Australian Independent Schools, highlighting pedagogies that emphasise deep learning, intellectual engagement, rigorous thinking and agency. Written by educators and school leaders at varied stages of their own infinite journeys of inquiry, these stories offer inspiring glimpses of what is possible when we honour the capabilities of young children.
