 By curriculum in abundance, the educators should use all that is available in the environment of the learner to ensure that concepts are well explained. By doing this, educators can break the flat literal ordinaries of the classroom experience and make the learning experience more interactive and exciting for the learners as well as making the contested meanings visible , understandable and pedagogically useful. Adopting curriculum in abundance allows us as educators to view the disciplines in our curriculum as living inheritances therefore classroom work involves getting in on the real, living conversations that constitute these disciplines as they actually function in the classroom.
 Materials in our abundance such as charts, clay moldings or even paintings have the ability to communicate, evoke memories and to make the learning experience interesting for learners in early childhood centers. Through using materials in our classrooms we can transforms children experiences in Early Childhood education by allowing children to produce new understandings as well as experiencing the world from multiple perspectives. Materials and children have an entangled co-existence in the way the mold each other, through materials such as pictures and drawing concepts that would rather feel boring and uninteresting to the mind of the child if explained in a flat way become more interesting and educative.

  It is worth noting that children have different abilities, whilst some respond well to learning using visual materials such as paper and clay, some respond well to learning using auditory materials, others to touch or kinesthetic. Therefore, we as educators should ensure our choice for materials should be done with due consideration of the children abilities and talents, materials if used in a static and predictable way have the ability to shut down creativity and therefore hamper good child growth and development. To ensure the learners gain the most from the materials, we as educators should review what is to be taught in class to get an understanding of the materials required.

 According to (Ingold, 2020 ) attention has multiple definitions namely, to care for someone or something in the world, to ignore other stimuli and focus on only one stimuli, it is also stretch of life, a stretch of a memory of the future that allows every present moment to be a new beginning also known as longing, This separates us from non-human beings, whereby we lead our lives rather than living. Caring on the other hand is being dutiful to someone or something and actions that we do in this fulfilment are tasks, actions that that we owe rather than own since in a community rich in diversity where everyone is different from anyone else, their presence demands some response and responsibility.
 (Ingold, 2020 ) notes that for us to care for others we must first allow them into our presence by understanding them through watching, listening and responding. In regards to education, I learn that caring takes the form of duty, where education is not done out of volition nor obligation rather as a discharge of duty.
  Education etymologically means , to rear or bring up, or to instill in each generation the approved manners of society and the knowledge on which they rest as well as leading the children into the world. It is a journey that begins in ignorance with the goal of intellect in mind, through this journey a learner gains knowledge about his world, by drawing his/her correspondence with the world. By walking this journey of education a journey of attention, the world gets to open up to the learners and is made present to them making them more informative and transformed through attention.
 Education is therefore a form of longing done responsively and responsibly with others as a duty, and a form of care and correspondence done and undergone with attention.
