Dr. Carol Loy, Director of Curriculum and Professional Development at Kinderland, ELFA, and NurtureStars, extended a warm welcome to all attendees to kickstart the day. In her remarks, Dr. Loy acknowledged the unique challenges that early childhood educators face in balancing effective teaching while responding to the needs of their students. Recognising the significance of self-care in mitigating workplace stress, this initiative reflects our commitment to support educators and foster a culture of holistic wellness in the field of early childhood education.
Ms. Marion Mony, Director of Programme and Development at Skool4Kidz, emphasised the importance of the 3 Ps: Physical, Psychological, and Professional wellness. This set the tone for the rest of the day, encouraging educators to prioritise self-care and take time off for themselves. Throughout the day, various workshops and sessions were designed to address the specific needs of maintaining a work-life balance.
