I can see why you had to take your tiem to write this very thoughtful piece Juliet. I believe early years people have always embraced the whole family when a child starts pre-school but do think that our primaries need ot learn to do this too. As the old African saying goes about the whole village to raise a child, we all meed to realise this too. As for the sustainable buildings - common sense surely? great post!

Thanks Kierna - I think I probably should have added that there's no point in hanging around waiting for the system to change. It won't - we have to do the work here :) I've a follow-up post that links nicely to this.

Thanks Karen - I just like the idea that humans already have strategies and approaches that have worked through generations - why re-invent the wheel?

Juliet, I am wondering if the Okanagan people are an insular group or do they also believe their engagement has to be with a greater community?
