Your children deserve quality education right from the formative years of their life. High-quality early childhood education gives young children the best possible start in their lives. It gives them ample opportunity to grow, learn and develop.

Sharing is one of the essential life skills every child should learn. Learning to share not only helps them make new friends, but also helps them learn about fairness, compromises, and cooperation.

Connecting with other parents and carers can enhance your child’s daycare or school experience. Bonding with other parents, whether at a daycare or childcare centre, is a good way to help your child learn about the value of connecting with others to build relationships.

Be it a toddler or pre-schooler, encouraging your childrens to cooperate from an early age is an essential social skill. Teaching children the art of cooperation makes them realise the importance and value of teamwork, develop trust with others, enhance empathy, and imbibe social skills.

If you have chosen to become an early childhood educator, it is likely did you have a real love of children and a passion for working with them. This is starting point that any parent entrusting their child to a service would expect. So already you have the qualities needed for an engaged early childhood educator.

A lesson plan created once a week helps give learning experiences a sound structure. When used in conjunction with the Montessori work cycle, a weekly lesson plan plays a vital role in identifying, following, and building the interests of a child using purposeful teaching strategies to support the development of skills over time.

Communication is integral for the holistic development of children. While many emphasise the importance of teachers communicating with students in the classroom, how they communicate with parents or carers should not be overlooked.

A new baby in the family always brings about a lot of changes. Many parents devote a substantial amount of time and effort on pre-birth planning, followed by post-birth care around the clock. As such, these changes can be very hard on the older siblings.

When researching the local kindergartens for your toddler, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the number of options. And while you might be tempted by the prospect of the various kindergarten programs and the sparkling facilities, it can be essential to think outside the box.
