Follow Friday: Kinderchat!!

Ok folks.  My first Follow Friday ever.  BUT, I always knew who would be my first recommendation if I ever really DID do a Follow Friday…the wonderful group of people over at Kinderchat!!  Not only is this group founded and headed-up by one of my all-time favourite people, she is also one of the BEST early childhood teachers EVER and always on my list of top go-to’s with ANY advice concerning children.  Poor girl, she happily listens to me as I go on and on about my kids…the good, the bad, the ugly…and always has a very well-educated, tried-and-true answer for me.

What are they all about??  Straight from Kinderchat’s website:

Kinderchat Goals:
1. To facilitate discussions among Educators, Parents, Policy Makers and the Public about Best Practices in Early Childhood Education.
2. To create a collaborative space where Teachers, Administrators, Parents and Organizations can share both their knowledge and the challenges of the learning and teaching of Young Children.
3. To highlight, learn from and discuss different philosophies of teaching and learning with Young Children.
4. To promote real world and real life experiences of working daily with young children, always preserving the dignity and importance of the unique experiences of the Young Child and the critical nature of Educating within Developmentally Appropriate Practices.
5. To create a greater sense of community among those working with Young Children
Doesn’t that pretty much sound amazing, whether you are a parent, teacher or working anywhere near young children?  I can tell you that their ideals and beliefs are sound, based on compiled experience, tireless research and worldwide networking; they are working together across national lines to make kids’ educational experiences REAL.
Follow them, people, for the love of your children.  Get yourself thinking about ALL things “small children”, and take them up on what they are doing.  They know what they’re talking about.  You can find them via:

Enjoy!  Happy Friday!
