Sports Day is a month away and two classes at Kaede Kindergarten in Hiroshima, Japan are busy getting ready for a box-stacking competition that will be the highlight of the event.
This short film, which originally aired on nationwide Japanese television (Television Shin-Hiroshima System [TSS)]), documents both teams’ journey over the course of the month – their trials, triumphs and, most importantly, lessons learned along the way.
Teachers at the kindergarten embrace the type of child-centred, play-based and collaborative approach that is proven to be effective in early childhood care and education (ECCE). As such, this is one the innovative approaches to ECCE that UNESCO Bangkok has selected to highlight as part of the ongoing “Documentation of Innovative Pedagogical Approaches and Tools in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE).”
