Description

When I found Jerrica Sannes account on Instagram, I felt a certain liberation to not feel the urge to constantly be thinking of ways to entertain the kids every waking hour. Instead, I am learning to give them the agency to come up with creative ways to engage with boredom and independent play.  Unstructured time is really the gift that keeps on giving.

We had a deep dive of a conversation from education in the early years, finding yourself after having children and most important she shared insight into choosing quality kids shows/ screen time based on her ranking system. She literally sits down and reviews and rates kids shows on things like attention, diversity etc. We laughed we shared great insight we laughed some more. It was really such a great one. 

 Some of the preferred shows are: 

  • The Snowy Day
  • Trash Truck
  • If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
  • Angela’s Christmas
  • Bug Diaries
  • Guess How Much I Love You
  • Stella and Sam
  • Bluey
  • Elinor Wonders Why

Her second best shows are: 

  • Stillwater
  • Llama Llama
  • Little Bear,
  • Puffin Rock
  • Julia Donaldson Movies – such as The Gruffalo and Zog
  • Tumble Leaf
