About Me

Hello and welcome to the Getsmart4kids website.

My name is Taryn Caird and I have worked  in primary schools with children for a total of 24 years.

During this period I worked as an Early Intervention Assistant for 19 years.  I dearly loved my job and enjoyed working closely with my fellow colleagues and the lovely children in our school.  I particularly liked observing the children and planning the resources and activities which would help them in the areas they required support with.  I loved working with the teachers and working cooperatively towards helping the children meet their full potential.

Unfortunately the role of Early Intervention came to an end in 2015 due to financial cut backs in the council budget and it was at that point I decided to start my own business planning, designing and making educational resources for use in primary schools with children aged approximately 4-8 years old.

I am a sole trader and work from home  and I probably work more hours than I did when I used to work full time in the school. However, if it is possible,  I think I love my work even more now and  am continually thinking and planning my next resource. I wanted to provide a service that would offer teachers and educators of children a choice of ways to access my resources so I started my website with the dual facility of making resources which could be downloaded or bought ready made.  I have also made a conscious decision to make my resources meet the needs of children who may require to take smaller steps with their learning as would have been used in my Early Intervention groups.

However, my resources are equally relative to mainstream learning, albeit that teachers may not require to buy/download all the stages offered for any given learning outcome as they may  need to cover fewer steps.  My resources have all been created using royalty free and copyright free images and my first resource was completed in November 2016.  Since the launch of my website I have made  well over 100 resources and will continue to add more  on a daily basis.

I look forward to providing a quality service to all my existing subscribers and future customers in 2018.
