Philosophy for Children

Philosophy4Children

"Philosophy for Children (enquiry based learning) offers a way to open up children's learning through enquiry and the exploration of ideas. Children learn that their ideas have value, and that the ideas of other children have value too. Through Philosophy for Children they realize that they don't always have to be right, but they gain the confidence to ask questions and learn through discussion." - Philosophy4Children
