Welcome to the August edition of Gowrie Australia’s refreshed Reflections magazine for childhood education and care professionals.
Gowrie Australia, which is a consortium of Gowrie centres across Australia, has revised the original format of Reflections, which will now be produced digitally every month as opposed to the former quarterly edition.
This edition considers the value of lifetime learning with the emergence of new theories, technologies, changing regulations and standards that enable early childhood professionals to question and continually reflect on practice e.g. the ‘why’ of the ‘what’ we do. Commitment to life-long learning is essential when working with children and families.
We reflect on the leader’s central role in establishing a culture of professionalism and ongoing learning in their teams, balanced with the individuals’ responsibility for their own professional learning.
