Why & Wonder
Sparking Curiosity and Wonder in the Early Years
Welcome to The WHY & WONDER Podcast, a place where we explore the joys, wonders, and whys of teaching and learning in the Early Years (Kindergarten to grade 2). Join hosts Dr. Michelle McKay and Klara Redford, experienced Early Years educators, professional learning facilitators, and authors, as they speak with guests about authentic and meaningful topics that will spark your curiosity and wonder! From researchers, authors, educators, and advocates, guests will get you thinking, sharing ideas that can be implemented in the classroom tomorrow, and reflecting on the importance of those pivotal Early Years! If you are a classroom teacher, an early childhood educator, a pre-service teacher, a researcher, an outdoor education enthusiast, a play advocate, a loose parts collector, or a family member of an Early Years child, this is the place for us to build community and joy!
