Whoops. Should probably have also introduced myself.
I am an early years Primary School Teacher on family leave with my 3 year old daughter and 5 month old baby son.
My blog is about the activities I do at home and tips on how to promote learning from these play activities.

Hope you'll stop by :)

We played a great game with numbers, natural found objects, and little legs running fast across the yard. Tell me what you think about it.

Hi Shelley!

Hello! Thought I should introduce myself. I am Shelley and I currently work with toddlers, ages 1-3.  I run a play-based classroom and am always looking for new ideas. Currently we are working on improvements to our outdoor play space since I love to get the children out as much as I can.

Hi everyone - I thought I should introduce myself.  I'm Alec Duncan from Perth Western Australia.  I'm a qualified child care worker (B. Soc. Sci. Children Studies) but I no longer work directly in that field.  I now do play-based instrumental music programs in child care centres and schools (kindergarten to Year 3 - 4 to 8 year olds) with my small business Child's Play Music. 


I use homemade instruments made from recycled materials and PVC. You can check out my page for some photos of the instruments if you are interested.


I don't yet have a web site, but you can find more information about me and my programs at my Facebook Page Child's Play Music .


This looks like a great site and I'm looking forward to joining the conversation.  Cheers!

Will you come and join in the Sunflower Festival?

I've been running a charity sunflower growing challenge in aid of Compton Hospice. On 30th June, to round off the challenge, I'm hositing a Sunflower Festival on my blog NurtureStore. Would you come and swap a kids craft, activity or play idea linked to sunflowers with us?

You can find more info here - I'd love you join in the fun!
