An open letter to early childhood educators

Early Childhood Educators Day 2023

Dear Early Childhood Educators, 


In the everyday busyness of life and this sector, it might be easy to overlook the fantastic part you play in the lives of young children, their families, and society as a whole. This Early Childhood Educators’ Day and every day, we want to acknowledge your ongoing dedication, compassion, and curiosity, and thank you for the profound impact you have on the lives of the young ones you nurture and indeed your whole learning community. Your role as early childhood professionals is both essential and commendable, and at Phoenix Support for Educators, we want to express our heartfelt thanks to you and your teams, today and always.  


In a world of constant change, you create an essential safe space where children’s needs and ideas are seen, heard, and valued. Your thoughtful programs and practices lay the foundation for the growth and development of our youngest citizens, not only academically, but emotionally, socially, and morally. Your influence shapes their perceptions, sparks their curiosity, develops their brain, and ignites their love for learning. In short, you foster the conditions for children to flourish and thrive. 


Your passion is evident in your interactions with children, the creative and engaging activities you plan, and the relationships you build with families. Your enthusiasm is contagious and instills a sense of wonder in the children around you.  


Early childhood professionals like you have made an art of continuous reflection on your practice. This understanding that education is not static sets the early childhood education and care sector apart from other disciplines; it requires constant evaluation and adaptation and is not without its challenges. Your willingness to learn and grow alongside children is a testament to your dedication. Your commitment to staying informed about the latest research and methodologies ensures that you are equipped to provide a high-quality education that meets the ever-changing needs of children, their families, and the wider community. 


As we recognize and celebrate your remarkable contributions, please know that your efforts are noticed and appreciated. You shape the future by nurturing the potential of our youngest generation. You plant the seeds of curiosity, compassion, and creativity that will blossom into a better world.  

Thank you for your service – to every child you teach, to the families you support, and to the communities you inspire – you make a difference every day, and your impact will be felt for generations to come. 


We hope you and your team enjoy the special gift we created for you this Early Childhood Educators Day. Informed by the latest research and theory from positive psychology, it’s full of fun activities designed to supercharge personal wellbeing and self-care practice. 


With heartfelt gratitude, 

The team at Phoenix Support for Educators.
