We want to say goodbye to 3 and 4 year olds sitting for hours copying from the chalkboard into their little exercise books and… sleeping at desks. Our new revolution to stop this and to help equip and empower early childhood teachers started today with our new training on age appropriate reading activities for early childhood teachers. This is a new training afternoon we have planned for around 50 local schools and we were quite happy with how it kicked off today!

    Great ideas and soo.. much fun. What ideas do you have for imaginative play? I was just thinking about nursery here in UK with Home corners and such things- a different thing in Uganda. I’m thinking about the development of gross motor skills with throwing and rolling balls which they’re so good at but being more intentional. Sorry that’s just what popped into my head. You’re doing such a good job. Xx

    • Thanks Di. This training was specifically on reading, phonics, letters, name stuff etc. We have done some bits on imaginative play, but will develop it a bit more later. Blocks, making model health centres and shopping corners… tonnes of ideas! And developing this in much greater detail at our college. Thanks for your interest as always! Much love! xx
