Supporting ESSENTIAL Foundation Skills in the Early Years

Early Childhood Essentials is a private teaching platform designed for the “developmental” learning needs of young children from 3 – 8 years of age. Teaching & learning in the early years includes support in the following areas; social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative. These developmental areas overlap and are integrated to optimise each child’s growth and development. No one need will stand in isolation of all the others. My teaching pedagogy is inclusive of all areas of each child’s individual development, the whole child.

About Us

My heart has always been with young children; listening to them, guiding them, supporting them to reach their own potential, whatever that may be and by whatever means is needed. Every child should be accepted for who they are in terms of their development and this rings true even more so for young children who are learning how to navigate their own little place in the world . They look to us for guidance, recognition, attention, validation and most importantly “unconditional love” as they instinctively can feel who genuinely cares about them. I value immensely the importance of my role in supporting their learning needs as the outcome will leave an imprint for the rest of their lives – in all areas of their lives!

How Young Children Learn

Tell Me, I Forget; Show Me, I Remember; Involve Me and I Understand!

Young children acquire a new language naturally. For them, language learning is not difficult. Language emphasis in the Early Years is about listening and speaking through best practice in child development principles for learning to be effective. Children who learn a new language at a young age will have better pronunciation and develop confidence within the culture of the new language. Children learn through play, this is our approach; holistic and hands-on experiences that are inquiry in nature. Our teaching focus is on the process rather than the end product and will always take into consideration each child’s individual learning needs.
