Professional Development - Building Foundations for Early Learning
We believe there has never been a more exciting time to be involved in the education and care of young children.
Our vision is to enrich Australian lives and build communities through literacy, and one of the ways we do this is by offering Professional Development workshops for staff working in early childhood.
The Building Foundations for Early Learning workshop is delivered in 3 modules and covers the following topics:
Module 1: Principles That Underpin Effective Practice
Focus on 11 Child Development Statements developed by the Education Council (formally SCSEEC) and how to incorporate these into programmed activities and share them with families at your centre or library.
Module 2: Practices That Promote Children’s Learning
Includes information about behaviour management, early literacy skills, culturally inclusive programs and planning story time sessions for young children that draw upon learning outcomes from the National Early Years Learning Framework.
Module 3: Story Time Resources and Handouts
A look at practical resources developed by The Little Big Book Club that are available for practitioners to use in early years settings.
The workshop has been developed in consultation with The SA Department for Education and Child Development and staff can record attendance for their Professional Development goals. Flexible delivery methods (after hours and during school holidays) and onsite training are also available.
