Learn from the experts in Early Childhood Education 
We get it. All parents want their best for their children, but having children does not come with a manual. There can be so much information and advice thrown at you as a parent of young children that it can be overwhelming.

The team at ECE Learning Unlimited are experts in early childhood education. We have been supporting educators to be their best for young children for a long time, so now it's time to share that knowledge and expertise with parents too.

We have lifted the load for busy parents, by doing the research for you and curating a collection of resources on a range of common parenting topics into one place - The ECELU Parent Library. We welcome you to use our growing parent library to support you in your own mission of growing great humans.

Embracing Risk: The Power of Risky and Rough and Tumble Play for Children

An important part of a parent’s role is to protect their children from harm. None of us want children to get hurt but the difficulty is that we risk creating a ‘cotton-wool’ generation if we are too over-protective. If children don’t learn how to assess and manage risk in childhood, there is a greater likelihood that they will engage in unsafe behaviours later in their lives.

This webinar has outlined the value of ‘risky’ and rough and tumble play and has shared how parents can support their children to learn important self-management skills in safe and supported ways.
