9.15am Session 1: Supporting inclusion of children with additional needs

Let’s say no more and hear feedback from the people who have taken part on this session before:
Question: How do you hope to change your practice as a result of this training?
‘To make my room more calming and welcoming for the children with additional needs’
‘Not necessarily change but it has helped me personally reflect and feel empowered to have confidence in early intervention within our service’
‘…. has made me reflect on my practices at my center with all of the children in my room, not just our children with additional learning needs.  I will definitely be incorporating a photo routine to assist all of the children in my room to make the day more predictable’

Hear from the expert how best to support and be inclusive of children with Additional Needs into our learning environments. This session provides solid theory and practical strategies to support children thrive.

10.30am Morning Tea

10.45am Session 2: The environment as a teacher: sustainable practices, small world setups and more

Don’t let your budget or space stop you from presenting exciting play environments that will stimulate and provoke the avid mind of a curious child. Feel excited and inspired with the extensive range of ideas to turn your learning environments into sustainable, practical and reflective of a proactive philosophy. Full charge your phones to take ideas with you!

This workshop was extremely well received at the last International Early Childhood Symposium held last April.

12pm Session 3: Super for self-employed FDC Educators
Has your Super been put in the ‘too hard to deal with’ basket? How can you make Super work for you when you are self-employed? Do you know about tax deductibility of Super payments, spouse contributions and tax rebates? Do you have a plan B for rainy days? Is your income protected if you’re unable to work due to illness? You work, you bring income to your family; how does that brings security as you grow older? MyLife MySuper will unveil the secrets and present you with an inspiring, optimistic options to brighten up your day and see the light at the end of the tunnel!

1pm Lunch

1.45pm Session 4: Exploring Risky Play

Let’s begin the conversation about risks in play, promoting ‘safe risks’ and ‘removing the bubble wrapping’ from our children. Let’s arm ourselves with solid research that supports safe exploration of the environment vs keeping our children safe. Can we provide children with opportunities to build independence and resilience whilst experiencing a sense of freedom? What’s being said and what is true, myths and facts. As one of our participants said … ‘(This session) helped alleviate my own fears about risky play’

3.15 – 3.30pm Networking, Lucky Door Prize and Close
