Hi, my name is Kelly. I have had just over 13 years experience working with and teaching children aged 3 months to 7 years, in various childcare/school settings and have loved every minute of it. At the moment, I am taking a break from teaching in schools and looking after my daughter Bee at home.
One of my favourite passions is being creative, even more so with my daughter. To see her little face and watch her grow and develop in front of my own eyes is a magical and priceless experience.
I believe that children's activities should be based on learning through play, with open ended resources, fun and creativity. Play is an essential aspect of a child's life. It provides an opportunity to develop in a situation where there is no right or wrong and as The Department for Children, Schools and Families (2008) says it "Underpins all development and learning for young children"
Please make sure you leave a comment and share thoughts at the end of my posts. I find it helps in being reflective and it is also nice to know if you are enjoying the blog.
So, I hope my blog makes you learn, laugh and have fun!
