Family Day Care held their first annual Educator conference, Themed ‘Learning through Play'.
The first annual educator conference for Family Day Care was held at Club Ashfield on Saturday 11th August 2018. The full day event was attended by 60 delegates from across our four coordination hubs (Inner West, Northern Beaches, Randwick and South Sydney and St George and Hurstville). The conference was themed ‘Learning through Play and included a lineup of amazing guest speakers including Helen Millar (Director of an exceeding preschool and teacher of early childhood), Dr Luke Touhill (early childhood educator) and our Educational Leader Tammy. These speakers took the Educators through the stages of play development, how the play environment is the third teacher in early childhood and great ways to utilize open ended and recycled materials to extend children's learning.
An array of lucky door prizes were on offer to be won throughout the day, including small world investigation packs and book packs which were eagerly received. The day was full of networking, information and motivation, and was incredibly beneficial to our educators, with results already being seen in our Educators' services.
Educators have expressed that they really enjoyed the engaging presentations from the speakers as well as the goodie bags.
"I really enjoyed the day and how we all learnt something together, I have already started using ideas in my service" Caroline K, Randwick South Sydney Hub.
