Welcome, this week what to do if you suspect your child is being bullied at child care and suggestions for embracing the magic of dramatic play this winter weekend.
Bullying in child care centres… pre-schoolers can be mean too
Bullying is not something most parents expect in a child care environment. However, bullying can occur at any age, including in preschools and early childhood education and care services. Though it would be easy to dismiss the bullying actions of a young child as a developmental phase, it is a very real problem that needs to be taken seriously, to ensure children retain their confidence and self-esteem and are allowed to grow and learn in a loving and safe environment.
Be dramatic
The many benefits of dramatic play
Dramatic play is something that young children have engaged in for many generations. But as children's lives become increasingly scheduled, dramatic play is something that can often become lost in the day-to-day rush. As a busy parent, dusting off your inner child to engage in let's pretend with your little ones can often be hard. But there are a myriad of benefits of dramatic play that will remain with a child throughout their lives.
