YES, I’M in MY PJ’S


I want to be PROFESSIONAL
BUT
That does not mean BORING
Today was our pyjama day and I LOVE it
I really do
The children LOVE it
and that makes for a fabulous day
We attended our playgroup PJ party
The children were super excited
Super Excited Children = Happy Parents
BUT I found myself with that little niggle
The questions that pop up
When we aren’t 100% comfortable
Guiding the children across the carpark
YES In my PJ’s
With four little people
ALL in our PJ’s
The questioning looks – Judging looks
You know the ones
What are you up to?
Why are you dressed like that – OR why aren’t you dressed?
Yes I took a deep breath
Yes I smiled to myself
AND re-convinced myself it was time for some fun
Have we forgotten FUN
FUN is a part of being an educator
Engaging children – Having FUN
An essential part of learning
Being positive
Offering Excitement
Encouraging being unique and individual
It’s all part of what we do
Part of being early childhood educators
Check out Simple Reflect – The latest documenting tool for Educators
But there’s MORE
Isn’t “FUN” part of being a child?
Isn’t “FUN” part of life??
I want my children to HAVE FUN…
I WANT to have FUN!!
PJ party’s, special days…
What out of the ordinary do YOU offer
Encourage, guide and enable
FUN in your care setting – In YOUR LIFE??

>>You CAN’T be an educator<<


Why would you want to be?
What makes you think, this is something YOU will achieve?
Why did you start your training, your journey?
The questioning deep inside
How did YOU know this path was for you??
Supporting, guiding, connecting with children
Building confidence, resilience, social skills every day
EVERY DAY
Is this path REALLY for you?
How do you know?
Why do early childhood educators just keep going?
Where does the driving force come from
How DO you know – with certainty –
that ECE is meant for you…
We focus on connection and belonging
On what our families and children NEED
What do YOU know to be true?
A level of TRUST, trust in ourselves?? MAYBE
Check out Simple Reflect – The latest documenting tool for Educators
A deep KNOWING that YOU make a difference
A passion that drives YOUR ACTIONS
You do SUPPORT
You do GUIDE
You do CONNECT
EVERY DAY
BUT IF YOU DON’T
It’s time to question
It’s time to dig deep and search your soul
It’s time to find the PASSION again or WALK AWAY
Children NEED early childhood educators that FEEL
Feel the passion, drive, confidence and certainty
EVERY DAY
IS THAT YOU??
What ACTIONS are you taking TODAY??

Do you love it?


I know some LOVE it
Some hate it, struggle with it, can’t find the flow
BUT I LOVE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
4 little munchkins asleep
3 schoolies making an easter hunt for the munchkins when they wake up
What could BE better?
The opportunities…
The guiding of kindness – understanding – focusing on what others will love
The conversations…
Will they be able to do this
Will they like it
Will they find it here?
As an Early childhood educator
As an advocate for mix aged care settings
As a dedicated FDC educator
I know THIS is what it’s all about – I GET it
BUT I ALSO REALLY LOVE IT
Facilitate the opportunity’s
Opportunity’s for children to WANT to do things for each other
Caring – Understanding – Kindness

This is where it starts
Do you know – feel – LOVE
the importance of being an EDUCATOR this week??

What will his inner voice say?


Do you ever scroll mindlessly??
I don’t do it very often
but when I do
I love to take note of what catches my eye!!
This week it was the many memes about
the children’s inner voices
you know
the ones that say
a child inner voice will become what they hear the most
The way a parent talks to their child will become their inner voice
BUT what about the way an educator speaks to their children??
We have some of our precious children in care
a huge amount of hours
a generation that spends more of their waking hours
in care – then at home –
How we speak to them
WILL effect their inner voices
how they are supported
how they are encouraged
how they are nurtured
our next generations inner voice will be greatly effected by
how WE as EDUCATORS speak to them…
Check out Simple Reflect – The latest documenting tool for Educators
How do you as an early childhood educator
show kindness – when YOU speak?
show acceptance – when YOU speak?
guide and encourage – when YOU speak?
There is A LOT to think about in our changing world
Do you take time out
really think
really reflect
really know
the effect YOU as an early childhood educator
are having on the precious children
WE CARE FOR…

Remember to Shine
