Child Care Industry News

Welcome, this week 19 ways to build better bonds with the parents and carers in your service… and the reasons why you should. Also, Thursday 29 June is International Mud Day, what a great excuse to get down and dirty in a mud kitchen.
Building better bonds with parents
Building and maintaining a strong relationship with the parents in your service offers many benefits, to the children themselves, but also to the network of talents, abilities and resources available to you.

However, with most families using early childhood education and care services so parents can go to work, the opportunities to build these relationships may be few and far between. Often contact is limited to brief catch-ups in the morning and afternoon and this is usually to relay information about the child’s day and any issues or developments which occurred.
Mud, mud glorious mud
International Mud Day 2017 happens on Thursday 29 June and is a great way to celebrate the wonderful sensory experience of… you guessed it MUD. Luckily for us in Australia, International Mud Day happens slap bang in the middle of winter so there is usually plenty of water around which makes it easy to mix up a batch of the good stuff.

International Mud Day traces its origins to the 2009 World Forum for Early Childhood Care and Education in Belfast when two members of the Nature Action Collaborative for Children, Gillian McAuliffe from Western Australia and Bishnu Bhatta from Nepal discussed the challenges children faced when playing in mud in each other's context.
