Early Life Foundations

Welcome to our Website!

We are here to support you as parents and educators and we work in the age range birth to 14 years of age in areas of parent support, teaching and learning, children's behaviours, and school and Early Childhood Education professional development.

We  provide expertise and support to parents, educators and organisations to create optimal parenting, learning and educational environments for children birth to 14 years. The organisation prides itself on our knowledge base and expertise, and on maintaining an independent voice on the national and international stage for children’s development, teaching and learning, research and parenting.


Teachers must convey to children that the goal of instruction is thinking, that the responsibly for thinking is theirs, that it is sometimes desirable to have more than one solution, that it is commendable when they take time to plan, than an answer can be changed with additional information. Costa 1985
