Early education is a time when parents and teachers are just getting accustomed to working together. Young students are starting to feel a little independence as they go out into a world where their parents do not follow for a few hours of the day. Other times, parents are actively engaged and dedicating a lot of their time to helping their young child learn.
Whatever method you use, it can be very scary trying to make sure your child is prepared for academic success. The best way of learning what to do (and what not to do) is through seeing what others have done before you. That is where Twitter can be immensely helpful – if you know where to go. The following are 20 of the best Twitter Feeds about early childhood education that will help both parents and teachers. Some of these are inspirational, others are humorous (because that is required on tough days), and many are a combination of both.
The list focuses on the following two aspects.
- The feeds must be relevant to early childhood education.
- It must be active, so you can come back to them on a regular basis for more ideas instead of waiting for months or years.
