    So my story is about an open-ended early childhood education in a centre that occupies and contributes to an unfinished world, a place of infinite possibilities, giving constant rise to

    wonder and surprise, magic moments and goose bumps, and a source of hope and renewed belief in the world: a place, too, where ‘freedom, democracy and solidarity are practiced and

    where the value of peace is promoted’. (Moss, 2013, p. 82)

    FORWARD TO THE B.C. REVISED EARLY LEARNING FRAMEWORK The B .C . Revised Early Learning Framework is the culmination of a collaborative process that included early childhood educators, primary teachers, academics, Indigenous organizations, Elders, government, and other professionals . The process has been lively, with rich discussions that brought forward many perspectives . Central to these discussions was acknowledgement that this framework has been, and continues to be, vital to early years practices for educators, children, and families in B .C .

    The first Early Learning Framework in 2008 changed the landscape of early years practice in British Columbia . In putting forward an image of the child as capable and full of potential and introducing Pedagogical Narration as a process for reflecting on knowledge and understandings of childhood, the framework served to broaden the dialogue about early learning in our province .

    Since 2008, there have been significant developments in the social, political, economic, and cultural context of B .C . These new realities require consideration of concepts, language, and connections that revitalize the thinking about practice with children, families, and communities in ways that are thoughtful and responsible . This Revised Early Learning Framework acknowledges these new realities and the changing perspectives and relations they bring .

    This revision:

    • Expands the focus from children aged 0-5 years to include children aged 0-8 years . This means the principles, vision, and pedagogy articulated here are relevant to working with children
