"Thank you for these e-courses. They are well thought out and presented on a range of topics. The courses cater for a range of educators from new to the profession or educators wanting a refresher with up to date information. As an educational leader I often refer my educators to read or partake in a course."
Many years ago we tried something that tipped the way that we worked on its head, we opened up the doors and allowed for free-roaming between our amazing outdoor space, our art studio and our two previously age-segregated rooms. It required a lot of communication between our team, a lot of reflective practice - but oh it was worth it!!
That's why when the opportunity to bring to life this wonderful course by Trisha Dean came about, we jumped at the chance. This is definitely one to get you thinking.
The course is broken up into five lessons and the following is covered:
Lesson 1 - What are the benefits of a multi-age community?
Lesson 2 - Linking to early childhood best practice and theories
Lesson 3 - Watch the video
Lesson 4 - How a multi-age community is supported through calculating ratios across the service?
Lesson 5 - The ideal combination – Mixed-age Groups and Primary Caregiving
Our mini courses are designed to be inspiring and practical - connecting theory, ideas and inspiration with strategies and actionable steps that will enhance your practice in your work with children.
Using what we know about how children best learn; consider alternate ways in which children can advance their knowledge and skill, including peer scaffolding.
Learn how to make the most of minimum ratios for services as they are outlined in the Educational Care and Services National Regulations (2011).
The course is suited to anyone working with children in long day care, preschools, family day care, OSHC and schools.
We suggest that the course is the equivalent of 1-1.5hr of face to face learning, however we recognise that all learners are different. There is content within the course that may take additional time.
Upon completion of your registration, you will receive a confirmation details with your login information.
You will have immediate access to the course, to complete in your own time. The course may include written content, images, videos, article links, ideas and inspiration.
All participants will complete a reflection/assessment which is personally responded to by one of our course facilitators before you receive your certificate.
