One of our educators noticed a street library at another preschool and brought the idea back to our children to ask their thoughts. It was COVID at the time and we were struggling making connections with the community. The children and our educators thought this would be a nice way to connect and share, reciprocally with our community. We contacted the local Men’s Shed to commission them to build the library, the children then spent many hours designing and painting the library, with one of our Aboriginal educators adding the finishing touches, symbols that reflect our local community environment.
Our street library represents many of the dispositions we strive to embed in our preschool children, kindness, sharing, responsibility, connections, community participation, pride and a sense of collaborative achievement.
