Exciting Journey Ahead – Our Hygge Adventure

I was very lucky recently, I mean VERY lucky, and it doesn’t happen often. I entered a competition on the Facebook Page for Hygge in the Early Years, run by the amazing Kimberly Smith, and to my utter amazement I won!

The competition was to win a place on the latest cohort of the Hygge in the Early Years Accreditation scheme. This is such an exciting opportunity for me and my setting to bring some calmness and joy into our practice as we work through this journey. We are aware it isn’t an overnight process so we are taking our time with it and savouring each lesson.

Check back for updates soon!

What I think Cultural Capital is.

This is my view on what Cultural Capital means for early years settings.

As I said, this is my view. You may have your own interpretation.

Whatever your view on Cultural Capital, just remember to feed those curious minds!

A little bit of Hygge everyday!

I was very fortunate today, I got to meet one of my lovely Early Years enthusiasts. Kimberley Smith is the Founder of KSEY Consultancy, the International Hub for Early Years Teaching and the driving force behind the Hygge in the Early Years movement.

I attended her Hygge Live event in Leeds this morning and it was a joyous and inspirational few hours which reminded us all to look after ourselves as well as the children (one of the prinicipal reasons I started the #selfcaresunday posts on my social media channels)

If you haven’t discovered this ethos and pedagogy yet I urge you to pop along to www.hyggeintheearlyyears.co.uk now and find out more.

Thanks for my gorgeous Hygge Journal too Kimberly!
