Ten Pillars of Good Childhood

Some more food for thought from Exchange Every Day!

August 6, 2012

Let’s make a dent in the universe.
-Steve Jobs

The Association for Childhood Education International, a member of the World Forum Alliance, is promoting Ten Pillars of Good Childhood as the basis for their “Decade for Childhood” campaign:

  1. Safe and secure places for living and learning and access to health care, clothing, and nutritious food.
  2. Strong families and loving, consistent caregivers.
  3. Social interactions and friendship.
  4. Creative play and physical activity.
  5. Appreciation and stewardship of the natural environment.
  6. Creative expression through music, dance, drama, and other arts.
  7. Education that develops the full capacities of the child — cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and ethical.
  8. Supportive, nurturing, child-friendly communities.
  9. Growing independence and decision making.
  10. Children and youth participating in community life.

  1. Seems like a really good awareness program, one we should consider ourselves to launch in our own centre.

  2. Remarkable! Its genuinely remarkable piece of writing, I have
    got much clear idea about from this paragraph.
