The OSHC Educators’ Network is structured for OSHC leaders and educators from our member schools to engage collaboratively in ways which invigorate and enrich practice. It provides a forum for provocation and discussion and facilitates a community of practice approach to ongoing professional learning. Implementing the My Time Our Place Framework and the National Quality Standard, participants will have the opportunity to visit and tour OSHC services and engage in rich group discussions relating to current research on educational theories and practices, focused topics and other questions and issues raised.
Inclusion in an OSHC setting: The professional work of OSHC educators is fundamental to the achievement of inclusion of every child’s learning. This involves holding and expressing inclusive values, fostering strong relationships with children, collaboration, inclusive practice and strong and ongoing professional development.
Scope of Session
In this session participants will:
- Review current practices in services that support inclusive environments for every child with a focus on transitions, relationships, resources, documentation and enrolment processes.
- Explore why consistent language between educators, families and other professionals is necessary when building and maintaining inclusive learning spaces in OSHC settings.
- Respond to provocations and questions posed including ‘What does ‘know your learner’ look like and sound like in the context of your unique setting?’
- Unpack the ECA Code of Ethics Principles and review how they can guide inclusive practice by professionals and services.
- Raise awareness of a range of available resources.
