This week we explored the all important s
ense of Belonging.
Where is your most favourite space to be? Where do you feel like you belong? What feelings and emotions come to mind when you think about that place/space?
Comfort, safety, security, acceptance, love, relationship, connection, family, inclusion, friendship, no bias or judgement…..
These are the feelings we want children and families to feel when they enter our services. A sense of belonging.
Our service becomes their service, a home away from home. A safe space. A space where they are free to contribute and participate within.
As educators, we need to ensure that creating belonging is our priority. We achieve this through our attitudes and professionalism, the environments we create and the way we embrace and celebrate diversity.
