Northern Territory Education and Care Award winners announced
Bronwyn Fielding, Rachel Jericho and Clyde Fenton Long Day Care were some of the winners at this year’s Northern Territory Education and Care Awards, given different honours for their unwavering commitment to nurturing the development of children in the Territory.
Ms Fielding, a Family Liaison Officer with Family as First Teachers’ (FaFT) claimed the Outstanding Aboriginal Educator award for not only showing an outstanding commitment to her professional development as well as others’ ongoing learning to deliver a quality and consistent FaFT program. She has also helped children transition from FaFT to a preschool setting.
The Outstanding Early Childhood Teacher award was won by Larapinta Child and Family Centre teacher Ms Jericho, whose passion for holistic early learning has left a significant mark on her students and their education and wellbeing. Her knowledge of early childhood pedagogy and genuine care for her students has allowed her to create seamless transitions into school settings.
Clyde Fenton Long Day Care was given the Outstanding Education and Care Program award, recognising the service’s exceptional trauma-informed practices to foster holistic development in children. This includes a play therapist and therapy dog on site, trauma-informed language, understanding of neurodevelopment and clinical supervision. They also operate both a government preschool and long day care for children aged three to five years old.
