Early Learning Nation (ELN) is an independent magazine devoted to early learning, covering challenges and successes in early learning, the science of the developing brain, policy, community building and more.
Rachael Katz (MS Ed.) and Helen Shwe Hadani (Ph.D.) are excellent companions for mothers, fathers and caregivers of young children. Their views on parenting derive from their own families, as well as extensive reading into the science of brain development.
What, in the end, do we want young children (and young parents) to be ready for? For a nation that forces you to run a race before your legs can even hold your own weight, or a nation that says ‘we’ve got you, take your time’?
Sharing is one of the most important skills taught by early educators, so it’s ironic that the early education sector is just getting around to embracing sharing as a strategy to make small businesses more sustainable.
