The third session in this series explores QA3 Physical Environment in the context of Family Day Care.  The presentation will look at important aspects of providing quality environments as they relate to children’s safety, health, care, play and learning.  This session opens up a discussion around educator’s responsibilities and provides practical suggestions to ensure resources and environments are safe, suitable and supportive of individual children.

The session will be presented by Nicky Spalding who has enjoyed a varied career in Early Childhood Education and Care which has spanned many years. Nicky’s specific work with Family Day Care has included working as a service co-ordinator, Educational Leader, educator, professional development facilitator, mentor, consultant, and researcher.  With a strength-based lens, Nicky sees opportunities for FDC educators to ensure their environments enable children to play, engage, learn, and develop.
