For the Juniors - Families
Aims to stimulate children's curiosity and imagination; widen their horizons and encourage them to explore their environment; raise issues and present enjoyable experiences which relate broadly to their lives and interests.
Nathan is 8 years old and lives with his brother and mother. We observe everyday life with this family, concentrating on how his mother, as a single parent, manages the household and spends time with her children. We see the many facets of belonging that are so important in family life. We also demonstrate the way in which members of the extended family play a significant role in developing the sense of belonging.
Catherine is 8 years old and lives with her mother, her father and her two sisters. The focus in this program is on cooperation in family life, the way in which each member of the family contributes to the smooth running of the household - and how in varying degrees, everyone is responsible for the well-being and safety of the others. It raises gender issues because it is Catherine's mother who goes to work while her father looks after the house and children.
Where I Live
Cassandra is 8 years old and has two families. She spends most of her time with her father, her brother, her stepmother and her three step sisters. She also spends some of the time living with her mother. The program explores the themes of where people live, who they live with and the way living arrangements change.
