Belonging – Just a Stone’s Throw Away

Posted on Updated on


I was lucky enough to be in Brisbane last week, working with the great team at Living Faith Early Learning Centre. I had the opportunity to see an amazing learning experience used to create a sense of belonging.

Each family was given a pebble and asked to write one special word, which has meaning for their family.

“Please take a pebble home and use the markers provided to write one word which has special meaning for your family. We’ll use these pebbles to help guide our principles and practices.”¬†

Each educator had also taken the time to write one special word, which holds meaning for them. By emphasizing common beliefs this experience is able to create a sense of belonging between staff and families.

What a great way to kick off a conversation about belonging!
