Technology: It’s Role, Requisites & Recourse in Early Childhood Education 31/05/2024

The summer season is upon us, and with it comes an influx of iPads, iPhones, and other devices at our centers. In this article, Melody McGuire decided to switch things up by incorporating insights from national accreditation organizations and renowned health organizations.

As both a parent of young children and an early childhood educator, she's grappled with the role of technology in her kids' lives. Technology offers incredible benefits, but it should never overshadow the crucial connections between young children and their caregivers.

She had to start with her OWN house! Her daughter's do NOT have their devices and it's only been one week into the summer! Seriously, it has already been challenging at home and she knows that it may be challenging for early education programs with school agers this summer but we have to stick it out!

Please, hear her of Melody's primary concerns this summer is witnessing devices being used as substitutes for high-quality education and care. Perhaps she's reading too much into the potential harm, but welcomes your thoughts on this! As she states, "I've been wrong before, and today might not be an exception."

Take a moment to read, reflect, and engage in a deeper conversation about this critical issue.

How do you strike the right balance in your classroom?

As we implement more technology in early childhood education, let's not forget the importance of balance. Regulated quality screen time, combined with hands-on experiences/ outdoor play, offers a well-rounded learning environment for young children.


I am excited to explore the role of technology in early childhood education! From interactive learning apps to educational games, technology’s dominance of our children’s lives is an overdue conversation.

Before I post my article, we will be taking time this week to explore technology's role, benefits, and future in ECE. Stay tuned for insights on how we can leverage digital tools responsibly to support young learners.


Parenthood is an extraordinary journey. It's filled with joy and wonders, yet also filled with unique challenges. We understand the unwavering commitment it takes to support a child's educational and personal development.

Why be Good, When You Can Be GREAT!


Obstacles Do Not Block The Path, They Are The Path! 👩‍🏫

Thoughts from reading the National Accreditation Accelerator Guidebook!


Dear Leader, Pause! You have to start having more than yearly conversations with your staff. I know that you do not want to be a "cheerleader" for your time but if you do not; then they will not be "that" for the Children.

For the Business Owner, the "money" is in the classroom and if the teachers do not the intrinsic motivation then may an investment with having me come as a guest lecturer.

FYI: For each "National Accreditation Accelerator Guidebook" that is purchased your team receives a COMPLIMENTARY virtual staff meeting. Visit to purchase your copy!

Why be Good, When You Can Be GREAT!


Do NOT allow Your "feelings" to get in the way of Your PROGRESS!


It is Time to STOP Dwelling on Your past Failures!


The prerequisite for “Exceedingly, ABUNDANTLY above all that you can ask or think” is to “have” done EVERYTHING that You can!


ECE & Childcare General PSA:

All of the time it is NOT a “Behavioral Management” issue in the Classroom. 🤯 It is a disregard for children’s interests, their learning style & proper planning! 👩🏽‍🏫


The “one thing” that I love is the “one thing” that makes or breaks ANY classroom, program and business; Teacher-Child Interactions! It is the EMBRACING of the magic of teacher-child interaction in Early Childhood Education & Childcare classrooms that “I” Can’t get enough of! 👩🏽‍🏫

It has been 23 years, since I first stepped into a 1st grade classroom to now. Welcome to the cool side where you are getting roughly ALL of my years into your screens.

Thank you for allowing me to witness the joy and connection that makes every moment special on and off of your screen.


WOTD: Insanity 😩
That IS wanting a new clientele and not doing anything to change your habits to get them! 🤷🏽‍♀️


Somebody is willing to “drive for their child to thrive” BUT your ECE & Childcare program looks and operates like your neighbors! !


Somebody is looking for Your services but You are stuck on looking like everybody else! 🫤 🎯


Why this baby just held the “Color Purple FANGER” at me! 😂

I was telling her teacher that I enjoyed their interaction & how she was mimicking her. I guess I was watching too hard! 😬
What’s in the 🍼’s this morning?


Please believe while I’m serving others… I am growing too! Even if it’s NOT to do something that I have been doing!

LESSON #1: The faster you learn the more you earn! “Get Somebody Else to Do It!”
Growing a Business has its Challenges. When it’s time to “scale” your business, find the people that can help you!
Evidence of a “Scaled Business” is its reputation and in the ECE & Childcare industry being a Nationally Accredited program is the highest pinnacle that is achievable!
Contact ECEcircletime! We will collaborate with you to Earn and MAINTAIN your National Accreditation status!

How do we help: Each program ALWAYS has the opportunity for their staff to attend our Evidence of Learning sessions at no additional cost; EVEN after they’ve became Nationally Accredited. That’s right EACH & EVERY “Virtual Training” they are able to attend.

Visit to schedule a National Accreditation Intensive Call. In 30 minutes or less we discuss your programs goals & needs “AND” suggest the organization that will be in alignment for your business.

Make sure that you save this post! For each program that attends our virtual training we will deduct that from your National Accreditation assistance.

On this Monday we will be discussing the Zone of Proximal Development And how it will support Classroom staff during the National Accreditation visit.
