‘Will change my teaching practice from now on.’ (Course participant, 2019)

Philosophy for Children (P4C) has long been valued by teachers as a method for developing critical and creative thinking skills through real dialogue about issues that matter to children. P4C aims to create a caring classroom situation where children:

  • learn to listen and respect each other
  • learn to be clear in their thinking and to make responsible and more deliberate judgements
  • learn to be more thoughtful by basing their decisions and actions on reasons
