In 2021, the Early Childhood Educators’ network will focus on and provide opportunities to:

  • collaborate and engage in professional discussions on current and emerging issues, at local and national levels
  • inform the development of policies and directions
  • provide a collaborative forum for questions and sharing of best practice for ongoing professional learning
  • network with interested early childhood professionals
  • respond to current research for future thinking and decision making relating to matters in early childhood education

These meetings will draw on the deep wisdom and rich experiences based in all educational approaches including Reggio Emilia, Steiner and Montessori, as well as faith-based beliefs that underpin a range of approaches. Through collaborative research, engagement in learning focused conversations and sharing professional practices we will respond to provocations from a range of educational resources, frameworks and curriculums.

Term 2 learning focus: Mathematics in the Early Years is Everywhere! How can we draw on our prior and new knowledge and our senses to find it?

Presenter: Desiree Gilbert, AISSA Senior Educational Consultant

We are delighted to advise that Desiree Gilbert will guide and ignite our mathematical thinking in a hands-on session where we will:

  • build the capacity of educators to recognise and respond to rich and meaningful  opportunities in young children’s everyday play experiences using mathematical concepts and contexts
  • create environments for children to resource their own mathematical thinking and learning through connecting with people, place, and natural materials
  • explore ways young children can use curiosity to make specific connections using mathematical thinking and language.


Target audience: Early Learning Centre Directors/Coordinators

Delivery mode: face to face
