I cannot think of a better time of year to forge forward with change.

As I look outside at my big beautiful oak tree that provides a canopy to the space where my daughter plays, I see TRANSFORMATION before my eyes and it inspires me.

Learning social-emotional skills early on in life is an important part of our development. These are the skills that support our interactions with those around us while we build long-lasting relationships with friends and loved ones, help us work through the tough times as well as celebrate the good, give us the courage to strive for our goals and the resilience to get there one step at a time. #teacher #parent #ece #educator #lifeskills #socialskills #emotionalskills #books #compassion

Looking at education today

In a space where we are constantly undergoing change to meet the needs of our surroundings, to adjust to the world we live in, we have yet to see a notable change in education.
We continue to educate our children in a way we have been for countless years, despite the fact that the world around us has changed dramatically.
The needs of our children have changed as our primary industries have shifted and the pressures of social media weigh heavily on us, relentlessly.
As with the changes we have seen in the last number of years, so should our approaches to creating enriching environments that allow our children to flourish.

Much like the tiny acorn that grew into the great big oak in my yard, there were challenges, struggles and freedoms to succeed. There was space to grow, nourishment and opportunity. Don’t our children deserve the same freedoms? The same space to thrive?
In my role, I have the opportunity to meet with change-makers in an attempt to bring my mission forward, to provoke the need for change, to stand up for the youngest of learners in our community and to work for enrichment in early childhood education. 

I would love to hear your thoughts on early childhood education.

 

Share your perspective with me so I can share it with those who make the decisions that impact us all. Let me know your experience, and what you would love to see happen in early childhood education.

 

I’m here, I’m listening. It’s time for change.
