The 9th Annual ABC Conference Advocating for children’s health, Behavioral/developmental health, and Complex health needs took place on Friday, 11/16. This yearly conference is hosted by the Illinois Chapter, #AmericanAcademyofPediatrics and provides ample opportunity for attendees to learn and network with like-hearted and like-minded professionals from multiple child-serving systems that have a stake in the lives of children, families, and communities. #Learning#Community#ECE#Health#Development#support
Op shop Stacker ✨
Having a wee try of our new colourful stacker. We stumbled across this in an opshop and what a find it was. Total of $4 from memory. It’s got various levels which makes it different from our other stackers. So many learning opportunities too... colour recognition, shape awareness, counting, height, fine motor!

Cranberry and dried orange oobleck. 🍊 Don’t throw out those leftover cranberries from Thanksgiving! Crush them up and add them to oobleck for messy and delicious-smelling fun. 🍊 It was nearly 70 degrees here yesterday and my daughter has been begging for oobleck. So, we took it to the deck and both girls were entertained for a solid hour. 🍊Are you a jellied cranberry sauce fan?

It promises to be a fantastic conference with Suzanne Axelsson from @interactionimagination, Tom Hobson aka @theteachertom Peter Gray and Meynell Walter lined up as key speakers. If you are at all interested in play it's the place to be next April and I'm excited to be presenting too about the power of creative movement and the intersection between dance and play. #playonathens#play#letthemplay#letthemdance#ece#earlychildhoodeducation#earlyyears
Soccer on Mondays and Thursdays, dance class on Tuesdays and Fridays, Girl Scouts on Wednesdays and art camp on the weekends – sprinkle in school, homework and screen time and you have one tightly packed #schedule for a kid. When is there time to #play ?
Floor time! It's so important to put babies in positions that are natural for them. She has a comfy place to explore and learn how to manipulate her body into new positions naturally. 👍 #infantcare#ece#babies#parenting
