More Early Years Professional Development sessions available!

29 June 2017 | General Interest

Do you want to know how to engage with Koorie families and make your Kindergarten Service culturally inclusive? Then this Professional Development workshop is for you!

These sessions will provide participants with knowledge, strategies and resources relating to the engagement of Koorie children and their families. It will also address how to make your kindergarten a culturally appropriate and welcoming environment. It is suitable for early years practitioners who work in kindergartens where there are significant numbers of Koorie children, as well as those who work in kindergartens where there are no Koorie children.

These sessions have relevance to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers Focus Areas 1.4 and 2.4.
