Hi, I’m Tanja McIlroy.

I’m a former teacher with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and 11 years of experience in the classroom.

I have taught various grades over the past years, but my passion is working with younger children. I believe that preschool and the first few years of primary/elementary are the most critical years to lay a solid foundation.

What children learn during early childhood forms the basis of their entire schooling career.

This blog is for parents and teachers, to give them as much information and guidance as possible on early childhood learning.

This website is a place parents and teachers can come to for quick, simple, play-based activities and ideas.

Your questions and comments are always welcome. Email me at if you have any questions and please share my articles so that others can benefit too.
