Abstract

A Whole Child Development (WCD) approach considers foundational learning as being child-centred and multi-dimensional, emphasising a variety of interconnected and context-dependent skills, competencies, and values for a child to thrive. Drawn from discussions with 10 education organisations from across the globe, this article explores how education systems can support teachers and school leaders to take a WCD approach.
