Translators as the new blacksmiths: great analogy
Just as blacksmiths helped move us into the industrial age, our modern-day wordsmiths - translators and interpreters - will help us move from the current age, in which information is merely available, to an age in which information also becomes highly relevant and useful.

Wow, LOVED these ideas, thanks so much for bringing them to us +Carrie Green. I got more value out of this 9 minute video than I have out of the HUNDREDS of 1 hour plus webinars I've been on :) Excited to check out Brigitte's work now too.

Lots of good freebie content flying around at the moment, but this is one of my favourites. Fantastic advice for new, established and aspiring authors, by Tim Grahl, the guy who has helped authors like Pamela Slim, Charles Duhigg, Daniel Pink, Chip and Dan Heath, etc. get to and stay on the bestseller lists.

My daughter has been at Clayfield Capers for almost three years now, across three different rooms. We've had contact with a number of educators during this time, and have attended a range of different days as our needs have evolved. We are also making an active choice to keep our daughter here for her Kindy year, as we believe it to be the best option in the area. The centre has always been very responsive to our needs. We've faced some challenges as a family over the period of her enrollment and Capers have always been willing and able to adjust the level of support and care offered to our daughter to assist us. This has been invaluable, as it's provided a level of stability and security we would not otherwise have had (we're not from Brisbane originally and don't have family living nearby). Our daughter has thrived during her time at Clayfield Capers. I've often had reason to drop in to the centre at different times of the day over the past three years (I live and work close by), and have never had cause for concern for her welfare. The level of genuine care, affection and engagement shown to her and the other children by the educators there has been truly exceptional. At times, my daughter has needed special attention for her eating, sleeping, or other such reasons (generally normal childhood things) and this has always been given as per our instructions, or better. We've also had the usual childhood bumps, scrapes and minor incidents over our time here, and again, this has been handled well. Communication with us has been clear and our daughter has been wonderfully cared for. The level of investment in the centre is obviously high: the indoor and outdoor spaces are constantly being remodelled and improved. Our child has spent a lot of time outdoors at the centre and has developed a real love of climbing and gardening during her time here. Clayfield Capers also work tirelessly to create a supportive environment within the community. Links with local schools, libraries, and other support services are also strong. For us, the centre has become like a trusted member of our family, a key support to our daughter and to us as parents.
