Helping Early Learning Professionals Feel Organised & Less Stressed!

Hi, I'm Ruthie 

Im an Early Childhood Educator & Creator of Starskills - EYLF Resources & EYLF Training. Since starting Starskills I have helped hundreds of teachers to get organised, feel less stressed & cut their paperwork at home!   I have 3 wonderful children and I want to spend as much time in their lives being present and available when I am at home.

I am a trained Early Childhood Educator with a Bachelor of Education specialising in Early Education. I have experience in day care , play groups, and creche settings. I have been involved with educating babies, toddlers, preschoolers and school aged children for 15 years. I have taught Kindergarten, Pre Primary & Year One. Over my time teaching I have also loved mentoring young passionate student teachers. I am currently on maternity leave whilst looking after my new little blessing!

If you have asked yourself these questions then you are in the right place!

  • “Where do I get easy to use EYLF Resources, Templates and help?”
  • “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?”

What Early Learning Professionals Have Said...

We are thrilled to have the Starskills quality EYLF resources to help our Early Years team! Ruth has created an amazingly affordable package that I would thoroughly recommend to educators and parents!

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.

The EYLF Resources has been invaluable to me. It has saved me a lot of time and money. It has also increased my confidence as a new early learning professional. All of the resources are visually appealing to both children and adults. The resources will encourage children to love learning – and adults to love teaching even more.

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.

I have now purchased my Early Resources Premium Bundle and 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 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, printables are a welcome addition. Much appreciated!
