RESOURCES & TRAINING FOR EARLY LEARNING PROFESSIONALS

Welcome to Starskills – Resources & Training for Early Learning Professionals!

My name is Ruthie and Starskills was born to help passionate Early Learning Professionals who work with 0-8 year olds. Starskills is where you will find early learning resources, EYLF templates & programming, Early Education Resources and a step by step walkthrough of the EYLF in online training to help you teach the babies, toddlers, preschoolers & K-2 kids in your world!

I have a Bachelor of Early Childhood and have worked in daycare to Year 2 classrooms over my teaching career. I have been passionately working with children since I was 15 years old! From helping at community kids programs to creating early learning programs for the community.

I am blessed with 2 beautiful children and while I absolutely love teaching family is my first priority.

With this in mind I have designed resources & training that will help educators save time and spend more time with your family creating memories! We can spend so many hours consumed with work that family can take the back seat (speaking from experience:) ) The joy of educating can be taken away because of the paperwork!

Everything I do is designed to support Early Learning Professionals feel less stressed and more organised.

Questions Starskills will help you with -:

  • "How do I teach 0-8 year olds?"
  • "How do I get my head around the Early Years Learning Framework?"
  • "How do I cut the time I spend documenting and planning so I can actually spend more time with the children?"
  • "Where do I start - I have no idea with the EYLF and am finding this whole journey overwhelming!?"
  • "How do I link my program to the EYLF?"
  • "How do I get the right information that is not conflicting and confusing? Everyone is doing it differently"
  • "How do I get my staff enthusiastic about the EYLF?"
  • "How do I do everything - portfolios, observations and programming?"
  • "How do I present the EYLF in a professional way that is easy for the parents to view and understand?"

Starskills offers a variety of EYLF Resources, EYLF Online Video Series & Early Education resources to help you teach-:

Starskills is a quality resource that allows me more time with my students and less time on my computer. Thank you Ruth for creating such an extensive resource! I would recommend Starskills to any early childhood educator.

Being a family day care educator I find your resources fitting for intentional teaching and your planner and portfolio templates are ideal as they are digital files allowing me to add in reflection learning stories, photos all with little editing that are then saved digital for each child portfolio. You are amazing at what you have created, keep up the great work of supplying such wonderful templates, posters and resources for our fabulous childcare educators

Wow! This is an absolute treasure trove of amazing resources. When the I was offered the opportunity to join the premium membership I jumped at the chance. I can’t wait to implement more Starskills resources into my Kindergarten classroom and use the planners and other resources in my transition to school program. The students find the activities engaging and love the visuals that accompany the resources. Ruthie has been so helpful with all my questions both through the website and the TPT store-all my queries have been answered quickly and effectively. Looking forward to the year ahead of membership, and hopefully many more after that. Thank you so much for this fantastic offer.

I am very excited to start using it in my Early Learning setting, everything is digital which fits in with how I program and document, it is all very easy to understand and use ….and is super cute!! My children love the cute pictures and fun work sheets (definitely doesn’t feel like “work”). You have responded to all of my questions and helped myself and other educators purchase together. Thank You for an outstanding package.

I would like to thank you Ruthie! What wonderful, inspiring resources you have provided. I have just returned to Family Day Care and I am so excited to be able to go full steam ahead with your help. I can now easily implement, understand and link EYLF with my own practices and learning environment , thanks to your resources and training course.You have saved me so much time, that I can now allow for the children. The play ideas, curriculum plans, cards, printable and songs are a welcome addition. Much appreciated!

The EYLF training course has helped me to understand the EYLF more as I get back into teaching after being a stay at home Mum. I feel more confident getting back into teaching! More importantly given me lots of practical ideas for each Principle, Practice and Outcome. All the resources and templates save me thousands of hours! This is a tremendous help for me as I work and it means less hours on paperwork and more hours playing and interacting with the children.

As an Early Childhood teacher I found I was spending so much time creating resources for my kindy room. The EYLF resources has helped saved me time and helped me in establishing my kindy room. The programs and resources that Ruthie provide in the premium bundle are fantastic and I will continue to use them throughout the year in my teaching, planning, assessment and overall organisation. Thank you Ruthie!
