"Our vision for early childhood education is to transform life experiences and memories into imagining and realizing sustainable futures. Doing ‘real things’ requires play and imagination. In play we transform work, language practices and social interactions. Doing ‘real things’ demands the ability to imagine better solutions to problems and opportunity to act upon them.

Children’s participation in everyday life and work provide them with meaning as well as social and practical skills and values. Practices and skills pass backwards and forwards between generations and across cultures. We need traditional knowledge, understandings and technologies to contribute to sustainable futures. Together our diverse stories and experiences provide global and local perspectives."
