012 : What the ‘teacher of teachers’ says about PLAY

education play Jun 16, 2019

Today, I want to share an episode of the Play Squad Podcast with you that I hope to spark conversations around Australia.

In this episode of the Podcast, I chat to Dr Sandra Hesterman, a University Lecturer who is the Director of Early Childhood Education - she is responsible for teaching early childhood teachers the ins and outs of classroom life.

We had a chat about the changing landscape of education, how more is expected at an earlier age and how we - as parents - have become ‘more accountable’ in these pre-school aged years.

I often think how much easier life would be for me (and my family) if I just went back to the classroom two days a week, instead of pursuing my heart-centred entrepreneurial path.

But the reality for me is, I am just SO PASSIONATE about how important PLAY is for our children and to help parents inject joy, playfulness and loving connection into their days with young kiddos.

If this resonates with you, please let me know over on Instagram!

BIGGEST smiles!
