Why Collaboration?

Posted by Gan Malibu Staff

Everyone of our lives is full of collaboration both  personally and professionally. We could never go a day without discussions and various forms of compromise with those around us.How and why is this life skill communicated on an Early Childhood level?

 When a child is in the "mine"

stage how is even the thought of working together towards a shared goal even possible? Each one of us is made up of strengths and weaknesses. The realization of those leads us to crave collaboration. 

When the clay was first introduced some friends only noticed the way the clay colored the base of the pool , while others realized that they could tear pieces off and form them into shapes. Verbally pointing out the individual childs "techniques" piques other childrens interest and then "scaffolding" begins.


When these objective observations are voiced peer learning happens and stronger bonds are formed between friends.
