Philosophy for Children

Philosophy for Children (P4C) is an interdisciplinary program that offers courses on P4C methods and practice to CSUB students. The P4C program is sponsored by KIE and partners with local elementary schools and public libraries to offer free programing to local families.

P4C Curriculum: Resources for Students

P4C Program includes a robust curriculum on the CSUB campus which includes two courses:

KIE-P4C Internships
Each year we will award two “KIE-P4C Internships” to students who will work with the P4C Team to organize events, facilitate P4C conversations, and expand the outreach fo the program in the community.

  • The fellowships include $1,500 stipends.
  • Application information coming soon
P4C Community Events

The P4C team offers monthly P4C conversations for 7–12-year-old children at public libraries. We partner with Kern County Libraries to offer special programming for One Book Kern events and Earth Day, and to organize a week-long P4C program during summer.
