TSS Podcast: Early Years Tips for Parents

The UAE is packed full of young families, meaning it is vital that our schools and nurseries are getting early years education absolutely right. This week, we invited two early years specialists to join our host, Jenny Mollon, in the podcast studio for an early childhood focussed episode.

Giving your child a great start to their education is vitally important. But what really matters when it comes to early years education? What should (and shouldn’t!) our children be learning in their formative years at school? We invited Jennifer Dinari, Foundation Stage Teacher and Head of Inclusion at Kings’ School Nad Al Sheba, and Hannah Hepworth, Head of Foundation Stage at Victory Heights Primary School to share their expertise on the latest episode of The School Show podcast.

It’s a great episode and well worth a listen. Tune in to hear our guests discuss;

  • What are the important things that parents need to know about early years education?
  • Why do early years educators talk so much about play? Why is play so important?
  • How does learning through play happen?
  • How can I tell if my child is making progress? What does progress look like in early years education?
  • Do children need to go to a nursery to make a good start at school?
  • What makes an early-years setting a good one?
  • What should parents be looking for when choosing a school or nursery?
  • How has the pandemic effected Early Years in schools?
  • What age is the right age to start nursery or school?

Our guests, Jennifer Dinari and Hannah Hepworth
