Dr. Annabella Cant

Dr. Annabella Cant’s dream is to continue the conversation she started in her research around Somatic Understanding and how by acknowledging it we might erase the disconnect that exists between ECE and further schooling. She would also love to amplify the foundational role of educators in nurturing children’s imaginative qualities by not restricting creativity in the name of false “academic” purposes. She also plans to advocate for the importance of a fluid and organic transition between the Somatic, Mythic Kinds of Understanding and following ones described in Imaginative Education.
