Staying updated, reflecting on practices and engaging in meaningful conversations is crucial for educators to provide the best quality experiences for young learners.

Recognising this, Child Australia has launched a FREE innovative networking event, CoLabs: Conversations over Learning and Bickies, that aims to bring together professionals from the ECEC sector to connect, share, and learn from each other’s experiences.

Version 2.0 of the Approved Learning Frameworks emphasises the importance of continuous professional learning and critical reflection among educators in the field. However, finding the time and space for self-improvement can be challenging, especially in the face of staff shortages and the demands of everyday life. Child Australia understands the significance of professional growth not only in enhancing teaching practices but also in nurturing a sense of wellbeing and connection within job roles.

This is why we are opening our doors to sector professionals to join us for a FREE networking and professional conversation event!

CoLABs: Conversations over Learning and Bickies

CoLABs is a fantastic platform for professionals within the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) sector to connect and engage in meaningful conversations. The focus on sharing and discussing the amazing things happening within different services is likely to inspire and encourage innovation in the field. Additionally, the opportunity to listen and learn from others’ experiences can foster collaboration and mutual support.

Facilitated conversations around current events in the ECEC sector can be incredibly beneficial. They provide a space for professionals to stay updated on the latest developments, trends, and challenges in the industry. It can also offer a platform for discussing potential solutions and best practices.

CoLABs isn’t just an event; it’s a movement.

It embodies the spirit of collaboration and growth that is vital in shaping the ECEC landscape for the better. It’s a testament to the dedication of Child Australia in nurturing educators not only as professionals but as individuals who contribute to the wellbeing of their young learners and the overall betterment of society.
