        Workshop Description

        In 2021, the CESA Early Childhood Network (ECN) will bring together educators who work with children aged Birth - 8. All CESA leaders, teachers and educators of children in prior to school and first years of school settings, are invited to be part of the network.

        The ECN returns this year with face to face meetings centrally at the Catholic Education Office, Thebarton, and via a series within regional centres also.

        The Network meetings provide educators with opportunities to connect, share, be inspired and to learn from and with each other, and from specialists in Early Childhood Education and Care and child-related disciplines. Working alongside the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) collection of children in their first year of school which takes place in 2021 and captures a snapshot across Australia of young children’s early development, the focus within the Early Childhood Network will be The Developing Child.

        Core FOCI and Priorities

        • Building and working within a community of practice, sharing knowledge, expertise and inspiration in early childhood (Birth - 8)
        • Supporting the transitions of children and families throughout early childhood (Birth - 8)
        • Developing knowledge of and considering possibilities with the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC)

        AITSL National Professional Standards for Teachers Include

        Standard 1.1: Physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of students
        Standard 1.5: Differentiate teaching to meet the specific learning needs of students across the full range of abilities
        Standard 4.1: Support student participation
        Standard 5.4: Interpret student data
        Standard 6.3: Engage with colleagues and improve practice

        Intended Audience: CESA Leaders, Teachers and Educators (Prior to School & First Years of School)

          Workshop Description

          Come to Nature Play HQ at Wittunga House for the Supporting Children’s Development Through Playful Pedagogies (Applying the Australian Early Development Census) workshops. Maria Taylor and colleagues from Nature Play SA, with Dr Amy Farndale from UniSA, will provide provocations where educators can apply knowledge of the AEDC domains to their understanding of children, childhood and emergent literacy and numeracy in playful and play-based settings. Educators reflect upon the AITSL Professional Standards for Teachers in this work and consider how pedagogical documentation may illustrate their co-constructed work with children and families, as they seek deeper engagement in learning experiences which build child efficacy and capacity, informed by knowledge of the AEDC developmental domains.
