Something to wRite about…
"We just have to be able to be doing what we know is important and appropriate for the age and development of the child that's in front of us. Not our image of what people expect or our sorta persona of a teacher that we want to have for ourselves."
Listen to it here:
It starts in the baby room:
Most of us in ECE agree that infancy is just as full of learning as preschool, but what should practice look like under that philosophy? Is it letters and numbers and shapes? Is it group activities? Lisa Murphy and Heather don’t think so.

This episode isn't just about working with babies, it's relevant to all age groups. It really made my morning listening to this one. If you haven't checked out this podcast, I highly recommend doing so, there are so many great topics for you to pick and choose from and so many guest speakers. I really enjoy when there are guest authors on there. It gives you a glimpse into what their style is like and into the books they write. I've purchased a few books from listening this this posdcast.

My family moved to Lake Country in November 2021. After 9 years of operating my preschool from downtown Kelowna, I opened up my preschool from my home in February 2022.
I will often post on my preschool Facebook page stories about my preschool and things we are doing etc. But then I decided I should utilize my webpage and start writing on here. I am in no means a professional writer, but wanted to give it a shot. There may be grammar and spelling mistakes, and I’m ok with that (please do not shame me for this!)
This is me, in the moment and sharing a part of my life alongside my preschool program. Feel free to comment and share your words with me if you choose. Happy reading ✨
