Create and Learn: Drama experiences in early childhood (NESA)

07/12/20179:00 am -12:15 pm
Gowrie NSW Training Room, Erskineville

Dramatic play engages children in both life and learning. Its real value lies in the fact that it increases children’s understanding of the world they live in and works to develop personal skills that will help them meet challenges with success throughout their lives.

This interactive session will provide your team with practical skills and ideas for incorporating dramatic play experiences in your early education and care program in meaningful ways. Besides learning about dramatic elements (tension, contrast, hook, character), attendees will gain knowledge of drama and its relationship to young children, as well as a practical understanding on how to set up a drama experience.

Webinar - Keeping families informed: exploring NQS element 1.3.3

30/01/20186:00 pm -7:30 pm
Online
$77.00

National Quality Standard Element 1.3.3 (revised NQS, 2018) reads that “families are informed about the program and their child’s progress”. Keeping families informed involves more than sending out a newsletter or wiring a “what we did today” journal post.

Our children are our greatest hope... every thinking person must realise that when this bitter strife is over we must build up a better world, and it is only through the children that this can be done.

- Lady Zara Gowrie
