I Don’t Want MY CHILD to miss out!!


Do you DO experiences with your children
BECAUSE you see others doing it??
A question – I needed to ASK YOU!!
I hear from educators
I hear from parents
I even say it myself sometimes
I DON’T WANT MY CHILDREN TO MISS OUT!!
If YOUR main reason for offering something -anything- to your children
Is that you don’t want them to miss out?
Then IT’S TIME…
Time to re-evaluate
AND
Re-assess your practice
WHAT are you offering the children?
WHY are you offering an experience?
HOW will you be offering value to your children?
BECAUSE…As early childhood educator’s
It’s about the CHILD
The value of each experience
The learning that is offered
The next step by step by step
NOT what other educators are doing with their children
OR let’s do this it will be fun
OR that special day is coming up
OR I don’t want my children to miss out
YOUR DECISION needs to be
IS this experience a valuable learning experience for my child’s next step?
YOUR FOCUS needs to be
IS this experience a valuable learning experience for my child’s next step?
YOUR COMMITMENT needs to be
IS this experience a valuable learning experience for my child’s next step?
Think over your program for the last month
Think over your planning for the next month
AND if YOU say YES
I AM offering valuable learning experiences
Then move forward and continue offering value to your children
AND if YOU say NO
Do some soul searching – Make some changes – Look at the children in your care – focus on development – Be brave – Dig deep and call yourself on the hard decisions
Now don’t get me wrong
I love offering the children interesting, creative experiences
That are fun, that are some special days, that are out and about in the community
Check out Simple Reflect – The latest documenting tool for Educators
BUT they ARE also around
My Decision
My focus
My Commitment
To offer the children the best experiences I can
So they will have positive, valuable, learning experiences EVERY time they are in care with me…
AND I encourage you to do the same!!
