We spend so much time formulating ideas to challenge stereotypes and perceptions of children, but are they working?
I’m sat chatting at the Playdough station with a group of older nursery children, when suddenly one of the boys asks me,
‘Do you like pink?’
‘Yes I do. That’s why I wear a pink shirt or jumper to nursery sometimes.’
‘I don’t’ he says.
‘I just don’t.’
One of the girls joins in, ‘I like pink and I like all colours.’
The title of this blog is ‘Wow its working’ because although the boy doesn’t like the colour pink, he had noticed the colour of the jumper I had been wearing and wanted to talk to me about it.
