Helping young children

The curiosity of young children you work with is growing as they get ready for school.   Their increased independence and desire to learn provides valuable opportunities for thinking, learning and imagining.   As you join in with their conversations, share stories, sing songs and play games together you help them on their journey towards being ready for school and doing the very best that they can.
