Our children’s creativity is celebrated as we carefully document and prominently display their thoughts and progression of thinking. This is accomplished using a variety of media such as photographs, transcripts of children’s thoughts with explanations, and visual representations (drawings, sculptures etc.).

Photographic and textual documentation of projects gives teachers opportunities to chart the evolution of a student’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, gives parents information regarding their child’s learning experience, and gives the child a sense of accomplishment.

Through documentation, children are able to establish connections between their existing experiences and new knowledge.

“Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.” - Loris Malaguzzi
