Yarn with the teachers, yarn with the elders
We grew up in an era where we use to walk all around country. You know, sort of getting the hands dirty. Going and touching things.
It’d be great to teach these babies; not only that but to mentor those parents. They can yarn with the teachers. They can yarn with the Elders.
They give their babies the best possible footing that they can.
Together we make the early years count. Talk to your local playgroup or kindy to find out more.
Aunty Veronica is a respected Elder and Yuwibara descendant.
She encourages families to yarn with the teachers and Elders about kindy and other early education options, to give children the best possible start they can.
‘We grew up in an era where we use to walk all around country, getting the hands dirty, going and touching things,’ she said.
‘It’d be great to teach these babies. We’ve got to make sure that we give them that foundation.’
She says to parents or carers who are unsure about kindy to go in and talk to the teachers and the people that are around them, or sit in the classroom to learn more about it.
