Welcome, this week we take a look at Fleer's Conceptual PlayWorld a new way for early childhood services to promote STEM skills in early childhood. Also, how to boost your child's resilience levels.
A new and fun way for educators to teach young children STEM
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) may sound like it's associated with school, university, and professional sectors, but is an important part of the early learning environment.

In their first five years, STEM education helps children to learn and make sense of the world. It develops their creative and critical thinking skills, connects conceptual ideas with hands-on experiences, and sets children on the path to being engaged, informed, and innovative members of society.

For these reasons, it's important that STEM skills are nurtured in the early learning environment, and to see how this can be done, we speak with Professor Marilyn Fleer.
How to build
resilience in your child
Life isn't all fun and games, and though we want the very best for our children, there will be times when the going gets tough. For this reason, it's important that children develop resilience, the ability to cope when things go wrong and to overcome unexpected challenges in their life.

Resilience can help children manage a stressful move to child care, deal with the loss of a grandparent or bounce back from a scary injury.

According to Harvard University, resilience helps some, but not all, children to do well despite facing significant hardships, like abuse, in their early years. This week we look at Harvard University's understanding of resilience, and see how you can help build this trait in your youngster.
