Early Childhood Educators have long been viewed as "glorified babysitters" or the "care before true learning begins."
This couldn't be more wrong.
Educators who choose to work in the early years are shaping the social emotional experiences for children that will take them into adulthood. They are there to wipe tears, dust off knees and celebrate the milestones of the children in their care. Every day, in every way, they show up for those families who choose them to love their littles while parents are needed elsewhere.
But yet, as educators, little space is given for ourselves. The grace we need for the days that feel heavy and overwhelming.
I've been offering a workshop for educators that walks them through a guided workbook where they can dig in and reflect on their experiences, what they love about their role, the impact of what they do everyday, who inspires them and how they can ask for help in the areas they wished they found more support in.
I wanted to offer this workbook to you, to print for your educators, along with a guide on how I present the ideas so that you can support the educators in your centre just as if I were there with you.
Instead of printing this workbook and asking you to pay $12-$15 per copy for each educator, plus the shipping and the consulting fee to have me present, I wanted to wrap it all up into one quick to consume workshop for you to learn and feel empowered in your role, so that you can offer support to the educators in your centre.
You'll be getting a pdf of the workbook to print the number of copies you need, a run through of the presentation I give to prepare educators for the work they are about to do with you, and a copy of the slides for you to put together your own presentation.
You'll also have access to me. To reach out anytime you need to support you in any way you can.
I'm here for you.
Let's work together, link arms and empower the educators who work so hard every day.
Hi and a great big welcome to you!
By shining a light on the incredible impact educators have on the lives of our youngest learners, I am on a mission to bring awareness to early childhood education and the role it plays in our communities.
It’s my hope that you find support, encouragement and balance in being the amazing educator you are.
I love hearing from my readers and really appreciate your feedback. Discussion is so key to what I offer here to support fellow educators in providing enriching opportunities for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and those in early years of education.
