    Shifting from ‘Nature Play’ to ‘Nature Pedagogy’ (NOR)

    Date: June 26, 2018

    Time: 6:30 am to 8:30 am

    “Have you started bringing nature play into your service? Are you unsure what it should look like? Is it authentic nature? Is it deepening children’s connection to the Earth? Are the children freely taking risks? … Or are you adding in bits of nature because its in the EYLF and NQF but you dont really know why or what it should look like in your program and want to go deeper? Kimberley Beasley has 20 years experience in Early Childhood and has designed over 60 early childhood outdoor play spaces. She lectures at 2 of Western Australia’s universities on early childhood environments and curriculum and has also researched what young children want in an outdoor play space”

    Literacy and Learning in Kindergarten August 2018

    Date: August 30, 2018

    Time: 9:00 am to 3:00 am

    Kindergarten is a period of huge potential learning. Kindergarten learning is optimised when an ‘early childhood’ approach is balanced with explicit instruction. This seminar explores: -What the research explains are the most essential pre-literacy skills for 3 & 4 year olds; phonemic awareness, alphabet knowledge and oral language – vocabulary and the ability to speak in grammatically correct sentences. -How can these skills be facilitated? Answer: 3-5 minute sessions presented several times in a day. -Screening: After 6 weeks of instruction skill acquisition is reviewed by presenting a sub-test on the PLD Pre-Literacy Screen. -The tracking of progress will identify the children who require additional attention and will focus staff. -Short ‘speech pathology’ derived oral language activities which facilitate the ability to speak in grammatically correct sentences. -Researchers consistently advocate for early intervention and preventative programs in the early years. -Children receive their best start when an early childhood approach is balanced with explicit systematic instruction.
