I Want to See More Autism Acceptance in Schools to Help Put an End to Bullying

All children deserve to be treated with respect One of the quotes I often see out there in the autism community is... “I don’t think the worst thing that could happen to me is raising a child with autism, I think the worst thing is to raise a child who is cruel to those with autism.” One of my earliest memories of cruelty to another

Teaching 2 and 3 Year Olds - Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers

"Early childhood is the most critical time for learning life skills and social skills – why are we so focused on whether kids can count to 10?

At the end of the day, their development as a person in Kindergarten is much more an indication of their future success than any academics (this has been WIDELY studied and documented).

So let’s hold off on checking basic skill boxes like 'knows shapes' as an indication of kindergarten readiness, and instead, make sure your child is learning to do these skills…"


Play Counts -Keynotes/Trainings/Coaching

Words from Niki Buchan:

This applies to early childhood education and care centres too! Increasingly I am seeing well intentioned educators trying to teach 3 and 4 year olds as well as younger children letters and numbers, giving them worksheets to complete, expecting them to sit still and pay attention. Are we unintentionally causing long term harm?

“When children have educational experiences that are not geared to their developmental level or in tune with their learning needs and cultures, it can cause them great harm, including feelings of inadequacy, anxiety and confusion.”

Take heed!


Janet Lansbury

Trust, whenever and wherever it’s possible, reasonable and age-appropriate, is one of the most profound gifts we can give our children. Through trust we offer children opportunities to fully own their achievements and internalize the validating message: “I did it!” This, as opposed to the far less self-affirming one: “Finally, I did what my parents have been wanting me to do!” Believe me, children know the difference.

Trust is also a gift for parents, because it means we don’t waste our energy trying to urge development forward or “fix” issues that are usually best resolved by providing children with a nurturing environment and leaving the rest up to them. Attempting to force development before a child is ready sets us both up for unnecessary frustration and failure...

Early Years Careers

Early years are not promoting fine motor skills enough

This is what we are about.

We treat every child as an individual and our children are given the opportunity to learn through play ; by doing so they develop their communication and literacy skills, mathematical skills, emotional and social skills, physical skills and science and technology.

We also promote healthy eating habits and therefore we work in partnership with our parents to ensure that healthy snacks are provided for our children.
