The Provincial Centre of Excellence promotes the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (2015) and embraces the values of Ontario’s pedagogical framework How Does Learning Happen (2014), including the view of children as protagonists in their own lifeworlds with participatory rights and responsibilities. It recognizes children and educators as capable, resourceful co-researchers, interested in inquiring seriously into the world around them. At the core, the Centre is a public forum for the advancement of early childhood pedagogies in Ontario where educators, children, families, instructors, leaders, and researchers are invited to collaboratively reimagine early childhood education as spaces for democratic possibilities
