Attending the 3 day research seminar was an extraordinary experience as we were able to learn from academics, teachers and researchers who just weeks before had been reading their articles and books. It was wonderful to be learning with early years researchers, facilitators and teachers from all over the world who are embracing Philosophy for/with children. I am grateful as I am sure the other students are, for the scholarships we were able to receive from ICPIC in collaboration with the Autonomous University of Madrid which enabled us to attend this enlightening pre-conference seminar!
