Podcast: Dear Mamas #6 – Early Childhood Education

It gives The Spinoff much pleasure to welcome Dear Mamas to our suite of podcasts. Dear Mamas is a “no bullshit, no judgement” look at being a parent, hosted by Holly Walker and Spinoff Parents editor Emily Writes. 

This is Dear Mamas, The Spinoff’s straight-talking parenting podcast with Holly Walker and Emily Writes, brought to you by Little Big Crate.

Each month, we catch up with a guest over coffee or wine to celebrate, commiserate, laugh, and sometimes cry about the highs and lows of life with small people. Our manifesto is no bullshit, no judgement, and we hope to build friendship, support, and community.

In this episode Emily and Holly explore the myriad of bewildering ECE options available for our children. Between them, they’ve just about tried them all, and they share their experiences good and bad. The hosts joined by an experienced ECE teacher, Jo, who also shares her own experiences and answers all Holly and Emily’s questions and even sets them at ease about their insecurities.
