Loose Parts 3: Inspiring Culturally Sustainable Environments
Daly, Lisa
Loose parts cross the boundaries of gender, age, abilities, and socioeconomic challenges. Loose Parts 3, the newest addition to the wildly popular Loose Parts series, helps teachers make a conscious effort to create culturally sustainable environments that allow children to grow and to conquer a dynamic world.

Over 400 full-color photographs beautifully illustrate the ongoing need for educational pedagogy that

  • creates a sense of belonging

  • supports children's identities

  • is culturally responsive and sustainable
  • Loose Parts 3 contains inspiration and guidance on how to create culturally sensitive and culturally sustainable early childhood environments through six key terms: aesthetic, authenticity, equity, dynamic, praxis, and critical reflection. Use your environment to promote a sense of wonder, curiosity and joy, and allow children to explore their identities.
