About

“I did nothing but explore with my hands and learn the name of every object that I touched; and the more I handled things and learned their names and uses, the more joyous and confident grew my sense of kinship with the rest of the world.” - Helen Keller Learning Through Experience (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/qxypk

"Organized education operates on the assumption that children learn only when and only what and only because we teach them. That is not true. It is very close to one hundred percent false." - John Holt Learning Through Experience (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/qxdua

“There is no single effort more radical in its potential for saving the world than a transformation of the way we raise our children.” - Marianne Williamson Learning Through Experience (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/qwms3

"The environment itself will teach the child, if every error he makes is manifest to him, without the intervention of a parent of teacher, who should remain a quiet observer of all that happens." - Maria Montessori Learning Within Community (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/qvv59

"The more we want our children to be: (1) lifelong learners, genuinely excited about words and numbers and ideas. (2) avoid sticking with what's easy and safe. (3) become sophisticated thinkers the more we should do everything possible to help them forget about grades." - Alfie Kohn Respect for the Individual (Sunflower pillar) ‪#RememberPlay‬ ✭ ‪#SharedWisdom‬ Join The Sunflower Circle: http://qoo.ly/qv477

CHILDREN SHOULD BE HEARD "What is in the voice of a child? Is it innocence, honesty, hope? Playfulness, a sense of wonder, an openness to learning? What happens to that voice when the child is met with disappointment? How does the voice change as realities unfurl, as dreams are squandered, as adult intentions become clear, as the bright shield of youth begins to dull and thin, scrubbed away by the grit of circumstance? When a child experiences trauma, how do we react? Perhaps, we feel guilty. We look away. Turn it off. Make it stop—for us, at least. While fictional, these spot-on interpretations of kids' internal narratives challenge our resolve by illuminating the incorrigible strength of the littlest hearts. Have your tissues handy."
