“It’s very important to teach children because it helps them to be confident and interact and connect with others. This can help them to thrive when they transition to primary school.”


“I love being a teacher because when I was at the primary level I enjoyed the way my teachers were and they inspired me to be a teacher. I really enjoyed my pedagogy training to become a teacher.”


“The Little Ripples program is special because it has helped us to understand children’s feelings and why it’s important to understand them. It helps us to be better teachers.”
