'I learnt that certain behaviours demonstrated by children doesn't necessarily mean that they are bad or naughty or spoilt even. Just like adults they have emotions, needs and expectations but unlike adults they are not able to process and articulate them. It's made me understand how truly important the term 'learning through play' is and how it's not just about teaching children the abc's etc. it's also crucial to understand that they need to learn about handling emotions. This seems really obvious when you think about it but it never occurred to me and I believe a majority of parents don't take this on board and just think their children are naughty or out of control. I would/did think this before I came on the course and it's really opened my eyes.' Sara, London
