We embrace change and we love a challenge – who doesn’t in early childhood? As you may know, we stopped teaching together at our beautiful kindergarten in the outer suburbs of Melbourne at the end of 2010 to concentrate on other aspects of our business such as teacher PD. We have thoroughly enjoyed this fun side of our business and thank you so much to everyone who has supported us.
We have decided this year that we will once again head in another direction. We have a dream of writing a book together with our friend Marc Armitage. A book about children and how through PLAY they are all universally connected. A photographic exploration of children doing what children do best P-L-A-Y. We’ve nicknamed it ‘Project Dreamer’ but we want it to be much more than a dream. Our intention is to work really hard this year in order to make this dream come true! Before that can happen however, Donna has a full year tour managing Marc Armitage who is coming to Australia at least three times in 2013 to run workshops and attend conference circuits and Sherry, who has recently completed a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, will become much more involved in tertiary training.
We are also interested in helping to organise other fabulous early childhood experts to bring the latest and greatest information to our preschool, long day care, OSHC, family day and primary school educators.
Our blog will remain, all of the great ideas for teaching in early education are still there, so please explore. From time to time we will put up a new post, but it won’t be as regular as it has been in the past. It is very difficult when we are not teaching and planning together to have new posts about activities/ideas etc… Our Facebook page will also remain and continue to be the fabulous resource that it has become.
2013 has started off very well for us as we hope it has for all of you!
Cheers … Sherry and Donna
