The Nest series: Why go to an early childhood settings?

Attending an early childhood educational setting is an exciting new phase in a child and a family’s life. This webinar explores how preschools help children develop cognitive, sensory, fine motor, emotional and social skills through play, and encourage a love of learning. Parents have an opportunity to join a new community, share experiences and learn with other parents and carers. Good parent-teacher relationships ensure the best outcomes for children in their educational journey.

We will explore:

  • Parents developing strong partnerships with educators and families
  • Children learning to play in a group
  • Children learning to become more independent
  • The preschool experience and becoming a member of the community

Hear from our panel of professional staff and ask questions. The webinar is facilitated by Plumtree’s trained parent peer workers with lived experience in raising a child with disability.
