ITS A KIDS WORLD

For those of us that work in early childhood development, it's impossible to remember all the funny anecdotes that happen during a class. Our work is rewarding on so many levels, but it's also highly enjoyable and full of laughs.

Our children are at a very special stage in their development, and their imaginations run wild with role playing, random conversations and spontaneous acts. 

Our classes can be highly entertaining. Children have very wise young minds, and some see classes as a performance stage. We see everything from acrobatic manoeuvres to acts of affection, to the use of secret superpowers that transform objects or transport you to another galaxy! 

As much as we teach them, they are continuously educating and reminding us that seeing the world through their eyes allows us to revisit those memories where the synergy between illusion and reality create a balance of complete happiness.

IT STARTS AT HOME...

We love observing the enthusiasm and encouragement that our parents show their children. A parent’s role is fundamental in their child's development. We have been fortunate enough to have met many extraordinary parents who have also become mentors, because we believe everyone has valuable knowledge and skills to share.

At Next Step we have witnessed some amazing changes in childrens' social behaviour, physical ability and cognitive development. This progress can only be achieved with the unconditional support of the parent and the many other professionals that work closely with our children. Ultimately, we all contribute in some capacity to the development of the child, and when we are given the opportunity to play our role, we consider it a privilege, and do our absolute best to create an optimum learning environment.

So, to all the parents, thank you for trusting in our program and inspiring us to become better coaches and role models for your children. For the mums, we wish you a very Happy Mother's Day this Sunday.
