Every child dreams about what they will be when they grow up…

The roots of career development begin early in a child’s life. Through play, young children explore their environment, learn to problem solve, make decisions and adjust to change. From a young age, children envision themselves in possible roles for their future. They talk about and try on their hopes and dreams. During these formative years, young children are influenced by family, school and media – and need to be supported in their career development.

Based on research conducted by Memorial University’s Dr Mildred Cahill and Dr Edith Furey, this guide explores the influence that parents and guardians have on the career development process of children, aged 3 to 8. It empowers parents to support young children during this critical period of play, fun and fantasy. The guide provides practical advice and actions that parents can take to help children develop positive beliefs about themselves, and enable them to imagine and achieve their aspirations.

A Guide for Educators is also available.
