Essential Resources believes in empowering educators to teach to their full potential so that they can inspire a lifelong love of learning and help build an equable and kind world.
We do this by supporting our superstars – the teachers and parents who influence and educate young children. Our superstars are busy, smart and inspirational. We partner with expert educators, editors, designers and web developers to create excellent education solutions that help them be the best they can be.
Each resource is strongly grounded by what works in an early childhood setting, providing educators with the tools and strategies needed to make a difference. Written by highly-experienced educator authors, they are well-designed, easy to use and created to maximise young children’s potential and extend educators professional practice.
