Isn't this a great way to include all family types? Rather than focusing on Mom and Dad, which is likely the minority of children's lived experience, use these new names!
We just love it!

Events that are inclusive of all families make it possible for students to focus their full attention on learning. Learn more tips like these at our session this Saturday for the Back-To-School Welcoming Schools Ed Series - Creating Gender Inclusive Schools!

❤️❤️longer post but worth the read! ❤️❤️

Are you allowed the time to sit, slow down and cuddle children in your setting?

Or is this seen as wasting time, hurry up get on ! “Why are you sitting down when there’s jobs and WORK to be done? “😬

Do you have big adult comfy chairs or a sofa?

Do you slow down during the nappy changing process or is there an expectation to get ‘them’ all done as quickly as possible?
Focusing on ‘them’ (the nappy) instead of the child?

Do you see mealtimes and the whole process as a chore to get through and done?
Do staff all go off on their lunches and the rest stand up, pace around or hover over dinner/ lunch tables giving instructions to eat up, stop chatting, hurry up ?
OR do adults slow down, sit down and eat with children at mealtimes?

Time to breathe out, talk, chat and connect ?

It’s hard isn’t it ? So much to get done. Especially when numbers are tight and staff are leaving Early years in their droves. We do understand 🥰

Do you insist on being called an educator of children, but forget about the importance of CARE GIVING.

We need to fill up Children’s emotional cup before any learning can be achieved.

If we switched the focus from tests, outcomes ELGs targets and EDUCATION, all those tasks jobs and getting things done and achieved quicker faster and on auto pilot!

Bring childCARE and nursery nursing as an important part of our role and responsibility. Things would start to improve for staff and most importantly for children 🙏🏼

CARE GIVING is fundamental to all future learning.

Keep in mind
Care giving is all those moments of CONNECTION, e.g. from changing a nappy, wiping a nose. Putting on a coat, mealtimes, soothing an upset child etc etc etc

“ The student is always more valuable, and infinitely more important, than the subject matter. Teaching is not a role, but a specialised caring relation” Nel Noddings

Slow down, connect, pause, relationships 🙏🏼

Remember YOU the adults are the most important resource within our settings & we all need to take the pressure off ourselves.
