NESA Accredited – Staff relationships with families: growing insights and building trust – 2-part
March 14, 2023
KU Children’s Services
A key Principle of the Early Years Learning Framework is ‘Partnerships’. The descriptor states that ‘learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when early childhood educators work in partnership with families’ (EYLF P.14). This workshop explores questions such as:
How do we build the trust needed for true partnerships?
What enables us to ‘see’ and understand from the perspective of families?
How do insights from families help us to support children’s learning, development, and wellbeing?
Laure has over 35 years’ experience in early childhood education. In 2016, she was awarded the NSW Premier’s Early Childhood Education Scholarship and completed a study tour around the USA, exploring technology use in early childhood. Laure is passionate about technology as a curriculum tool and promoting innovative programs.
Jan has more than 35 years’ experience in the early childhood sector as a teacher, centre director, manager of children’s services and as a professional learning consultant.
