Building a Strong Sense of Identity

Building a strong sense of identity focuses on the importance of understanding how children construct and develop their own sense of who they are and how they develop a sense belonging within the family and community.

It will examine the importance of early experiences in relation to this. The connection between the vision, belonging, being, and becoming and the shaping of one’s identity will be discussed, and the areas of attachment, social and cultural heritage, evolving experiences and positive relationship building will be explored.

Educators will be encouraged to reflect on their own knowledge, beliefs and values, as well as critically examining documentation and the provisions within programs.

Learning Outcomes

  • For educators to understand how children develop a sense of who they are.
  • To assist children to develop a sense of belonging within the family and community.

EYLF
Connecting Children with the World This session will target specific training and dialogue around the effect of experiences and relationships that assist children to make connections to their world.

The relationship this has to the vision of the National Early Years Learning Framework in terms of belonging, being and becoming will be examined as part of a holistic approach to children’s overall learning and development. Early childhood services who provide children with opportunities to interact together and more broadly within their communities allow children to gain important skills and feelings of validity, experience interdependency, and build on their own self identity.

The session will provide a forum where participants can reflect on their current practices in relation to connectivity and share and extend on ways to further enhance children’s contributions and connections to their world.

The session will look at diversity, social responsiveness, fairness and justice and how we can provide programs that allow children to explore and experience this.

Develop Confident and Involved Learners

This interactive session will examine the processes children use to develop understandings of themselves and their world and how children construct their own learning strategies. In a supportive learning environment children are given the opportunity to be responsible for their own learning, choices and contributions to their world.

Through hands on active investigation children are able to develop strategies and nature of learning and are able to constantly build on and adapt what they learn to suit a variety of contexts and situations. This session will explore how early childhood educators can provide environments that instil a love of learning, support children’s learning styles and reinforce the value of hands on exploration and play in facilitating confident and involved learning.

Participants will be encouraged to consider how children learn, and how through keen observation and documentation this learning can be made visible to children and families.

Learning Outcomes

  • To understand the process by which children develop their own understanding of themselves and “their” world.
  • To assist children to build on and adapt what they learn to suit a variety of contexts and situations.

Development, EYLF
Documentation with Respect The National Early Years Learning Framework for Australia has highlighted the importance of making learning visible via a variety of methods which collectively is referred to as documentation.. This focus on documentation rather than “observation” has opened up possibilities to go deeper with examining the many ways children express their understandings and learning.

Documentation includes expressing children’s own goals and describing much more than what is just seen. It brings the child to the centre of our program where we look at the strengths and uniqueness of each individual as well as their learning within the social context.

The five key learning outcomes provide educators with key points of reference against which children’s progress can be documented and shared with children, families and other professionals. Respectful documentation is child centred, reflects children’s strengths and interests, and incorporates all relevant stakeholders in the reflection of learning that is occurring and has occurred within our settings.

Educators who are interested in reflecting the EYLF, and developing their skills in noticing and writing respectful and meaningful documentation will benefit by attending this interactive session as we examine the possibilities of making children’s learning visible in our programs.

Learning Outcomes

  • To focus on documentation rather than observation.
  • To understand the importance of incorporating children’s own goals when documenting learning.
  • To examine the possibilities of making children’s learning visible in your programs.
