Here are four surprising ways
that you could make a difference.

Four ways an Early Learning professional
helps a child learn and grow.
Small children soak up information
at superfast speed. With simple
interactions and play, you will
teach them all kinds of things –
how to problem solve, build
relationships, communicate, and
develop self-control. Skills that
will last for the rest of their lives!
You’ll be helping them build
1 million new brain connections
every second.
FACT 1
Early Learning professionals
provide some of the key
ingredients that help children
develop mental flexibility. This
affects things like how good a
child’s memory is, how they
make decisions, and how well
they can multitask – skills which
are all crucial for a happy and
successful life.
Early Learning professionals help
children grow elephant sized
memories!
FACT 2
When you spend time playing
games and doing activities with
young children, the synapses
(connections) in their brains grow
stronger. Amazingly, the more
synapses that are firing in their
brains, the more capacity their
brains have, the better they are
able to learn and understand the
world around them. This helps
them deal with things like stress,
now and as an adult.
You have the power to make the world
a less stressful place (yes really!)
FACT 3
You’re not just growing cress,
painting pasta pictures and
playing hide and seek. Everything
you do together creates a
blueprint for all their future
learning, behaviour and health.
Essentially, great Early Learning
professionals help to grow smart,
successful children with amazing
little personalities.
Every time you interact
with a child, you help their
personality grow!
