Welcome, this week, in light of the ongoing measles outbreak, the importance of encouraging your staff to keep their vaccinations up to date, and strategies to support young children learning about sharing.
Educator vaccination status a growing concern
We're amidst a measles epidemic with the World Health Organisation (WHO) reporting a whopping 300 per cent increase in the number of cases worldwide in the first three months of 2019, compared to the same period last year.

What's most alarming is countries such as Australia and New Zealand, where vaccination levels are high, there have still been recent spikes in measles outbreaks. The culprit is thought to be clusters of unvaccinated people spreading the highly infectious disease, something that has put the immunisation status of early childhood educators under the spotlight.
The importance
of sharing
Sharing is an essential skill for social, cognitive, and emotional development of children. When even the most basic sharing skills are developed in the preschool years, the positive effects on communication and socialisation can extend long into the future.

Early childhood educators are in a good position to encourage the development and practice of sharing. This week we look at the reasons it's important and how you can easily promote sharing among the children in your service.
