I have been meaning to start this blog for some time now... probably years! Somehow, my own children, my businesses, my husband, my health and fitness goals.... everything has slowed down this process in many ways.... until today.
I have much to say...
I have so much yet to learn...
I'm trying every day to be a stronger leader, have an positive impact on the children I care for and the educators that I employ.
I am an emotional writer, as you may soon realize and I get very passionate about the topics that directly impact my work, and my family.
I have learned a lot about myself and my career as an early childhood educator over the past (almost) 19 years. My hopes are to share my thoughts, my questions and things that I grapple with daily about: current practise, relationships between caregivers and children, children and their surroundings, my beliefs around children's capabilities, nature, holistic learning environments and always; my ever- changing....... " Image of the Child." I would like to thank you for taking a moment of time out of your precious day to read my posts. I hope to inspire you along the way, and perhaps open your eyes (and hearts)to the beauty of children in nature.... and why I love my life as an early childhood educator and mother of three!
