Facilitating children’s agency in early childhood education and care
Chapter 9 acknowledges children as capable agentic citizens in their own right, with the chapter describing what children’s agency looks like and how educators can facilitate it. The chapter discusses research findings that have implications for practice, showing how educators can identify and support children’s agency. An expanded theorization of children’s agency is shared, to provide children with opportunities to enact their agency in ECEC settings.
