Hi Everyone, Welcome and thank you for visiting My Little Earthling!
We are Larissa and Jake, proud parents to two amazing girls and the owners of My Little Earthling.
We are a small business here at My Little Earthling being a mum/dad team based in Wollongong, NSW!
Having already a background in Early Childhood Education and engaged in learning with our little earthlings we were inspired to dive in and create a space for My Little Earthling to exist.
We would definitely say our girls gave us a gentle nudge to pursue our passion; to create a space and share our journey into children’s education and learning, ideas, activities and resources we find that support our children holistically ~ Through our experiences and learning journey with our earthlings we hope we can bring comfort, support, resources and ideas that benefit you and your children.
We believe and advocate for quality resources, eco and sustainable products, educational toys that invite children to learn through play.
We are hopeful that you can find My Little Earthling to be a place to inspire a love of learning, to provoke and engage and allow you to dive deep back into the roots of who we are through play and ignite strong connections through this creative process.
We want My Little Earthling to be a safe and secure space for families, educators and children to discover new ideas and also reconnect with each other through exploration of resources and tools you will find online.
We hope My Little Earthling can become a sound board for open communication and a space for community growth ~ Ultimately we hope we can bring joy and spread some happiness into the world and what better way to do this than to share our journey of children’s education, learning and life.
We hope you can follow our journey. Follow us on Instagram, facebook and over on the blog ‘Learning with our earthlings’ where we will be sharing parts of our day, products we love which support our children in their learning. Please follow, Like, Tag and Share our page to help us grow ~ Please say Hi, Looking forward to meeting you!
Big Love - Larissa, Jake and our little earthlings ♡
The Three Teachers ⋒
We believe parents are a child’s first teacher. Learning happens in the everyday moments parents share with their children. Parents play an important role in their child's development and learning! Everything parents and their children do together will teach important lessons that will help them grow and learn about their world.
The second teacher is the “classroom” teacher who intentionally engages children in meaningful work and conversation and extends further learning.
The third teacher is the environment, designed to be not only functional but also beautiful and reflective of the child's learning.
