Welcome to p4c.com

Philosophy for Children (p4c) is a wonderful way of bringing teachers and children together to discuss things that matter. It has many benefits for both groups. But there aren’t enough hours in the day to discover new materials, produce resources and lesson plans and invent new activities to keep you and your pupils interested. That’s why we have done a lot of work for you by publishing ideas, lesson plans, resources and recommendations on-line.
