What is P4C?


  • Philosophy for Children (P4C) is a powerful educational approach which has been found through research studies to have cognitive and social benefits for children and schools.
  • It is more effective, and less expensive, than any comparable approach. Attainment and happiness are increased.
  • It is centred on philosophical enquiry, where a trained teacher encourages children to think and reason as a group.
  • It supports Personal, Social and Health Education and complements many government initiatives and education strategies.
