Early Childhood Education and Care News
April 13, 2021
Welcome, this week take a trip to the lovely Sunshine Coast and visit Sippy Downs Early Learning Centre, where bare feet and goats are just a normal part of the daily routine. Also, we've got the lowdown on neuro-linguistic programming in early learning.

If you said yes to all of the above, it's time to head to Queensland's Sunshine Coast and seek out vacancies at the Sippy Downs Early Learning Centre. Oh, did I mention it has a super cute name too?
NLP in early education
Neuro-linguistic programming: It sounds like a form of brainwashing, some kind of science-fiction hypnosis technique used by Tom Cruise to reprogram your brain for a particular (probably nefarious) purpose. But what is it really?

The reality is far less worrisome and could even be considered promising, when you take into account the benefits it can provide for both educators/teachers and children in early childhood education and care.

The technical definition describes neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) as "purported systematic, cybernetic links between a person's internal experience (neuro), their language (linguistic) and their patterns of behaviour (programming)" – Neuro-linguistic programming: its potential for learning and teaching in formal education, Tosey and Mathison, 2003.

That doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me as I don't speak PhD, so I did a bit more digging to understand what NLP actually is and how it works. This is the lowdown:
