Early Learning Matters Week

This week we celebrate Early Learning Matters Week, a week dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of early childhood education and care in children’s development and wellbeing. It is a great opportunity to talk about the importance of high-quality early education and care which supports children to be confident, enthusiastic learners, building a foundation for wellbeing and achievement throughout their lives.

Kids’ Uni will mark this special week by sharing information with their families and the wider community about the learning that takes place within their spaces and advocate to Government and policymakers for further investment in early childhood education. Kids’ Uni services are proud of the high-quality education and care they provide and is reflected in the quality rating results where all services are rated as exceeding the National Quality Standard.

You can support Early Learning Matters Week by:

• Watching the following TED Talk. “What if I was to tell you that a game of peek-a-boo could change the world?” Breaking down ways parents and caregivers can support children’s healthy brain development, highlighting the benefits of play on lifelong learning, behaviour and well-being, sharing effective strategies to help all kids thrive by the age of five.

• Joining the Thrive by Five Project, which is campaigning to make our early learning childcare system high quality and universally accessible. Thrive by Five believe this to be the most significant educational, social and economic reform of our era. More info and join here: https://lnkd.in/gJpxwEY
