Gowrie Victoria provides subsidised coaching support to selected kindergarten services for school readiness funding. We can provide support to assist with the implementation of a particular project, or to coach on specific topics under the three school readiness funding priority areas:
- Communication (language development)
- Wellbeing (social and emotional regulation)
- Access and inclusion
Which services is this coaching support aimed at?
- Kindergarten services that have included coaching support in their plans and are looking for a suitable coach
- Kindergarten services in regional and rural Victoria
- Kindergarten services that are rated as ‘Working Towards’ Quality Areas 1 (Educational Program and Practice) and 5 (Relationships with Children), or services that are less confident in these areas
- Kindergarten services that need assistance with the implementation of programs and supports from the menu for school readiness funding – this may be particularly helpful for services that need additional support to implement programs effectively.
What would this coaching support look like?
Coaching on site with a Gowrie Victoria consultant can include:
- observation of educational practice to understand the needs of the educators and the service
- leading reflective practice conversations with educators to promote change and improvement in educational practice
- supporting educators and the service with strategies to consider and implement, based around the priority areas
- supporting educators and services to ensure the school readiness funding annual plan and Quality Improvement Plan are aligned.
