We had a long discussion about the unspoken belief that all children thrive in a visual stimulating and noisy environment.
The mother has investigated Rudolf Steiner but waiting lists are long and she worries still that the environment might be overpowering.
ECE centres all seem to all provide a veritable circus of colour, text, images and sounds.

Here’s how our membership plans work:
- Individual Membership plans can view both Individual member-only articles and our library of Research Journals (but not the ECE Service management article area). In addition, individual members can discuss and ask questions of fellow members any time through the online childcare and early childhood education practice, policy, and research discussion forum.
- Early Childhood Service plans can view ALL member articles: Individual, Research Journals and Early Childhood Service articles. Also on this membership plan members can access the online discussion forum for individual members AND the online ECE service management / business forum.
- Research Journal subscription plans can view our library of Research Journals and related research articles only
