Ensuring quality in early childhood education and care
Students from Australian Catholic University's Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood and Primary) course recently held a Directors' Forum that asked the question, 'What is quality in early childhood education and care?'
Held at the University's Canberra Campus, the forum was designed to enhance student learning and their ability to enrich early childhood education systems.
Directors and representatives from a variety of organisations, as well as ACU staff and students, took part in the forum.
Also present were representatives from the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support, Bungendore Kids Zone, The Park School for Early Learning, Acton Early Childcare Centre, St Philip's Kindergarten, Weston Creek Children's Centre, Communities @ Work and the Deakin School for Early Learning.
The Directors' Forum is an integral part of the Early Childhood Leadership unit. This course is the final Early Childhood Studies unit that students undertake as part of the early childhood course at ACU.
