Welcome, this week read about Greenwood Early Education's pioneering kid's yoga program and learn how and why you should be conducting regular parent satisfaction surveys. Plus we let you know about the public consultation session dates for the NQF review.
Yoga for kids at Greenwood
Greenwood Early Education has just introduced a yoga for kids program which is included in the daily routine of all two-six year old children. The yoga curriculum was developed in conjunction with children's yoga expert Nadia Kudiarskyj and introduces kids to the basics of yoga using a storytelling framework.

Each guided lesson supports the development of gross motor skills, body awareness and listening skills and is part of Greenwood's holistic approach to early education according to Chief Executive Carol Tannous-Sleiman.

Carol says there are many advantages to providing children with the opportunity to participate in a daily yoga practice including increased mental alertness, flexibility and concentration and more opportunities for physical movement.

NQF review public consultations
The Australian Government and states are conducting a review of the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care Services this year with public consultation sessions starting this month.

The Government says the Review is to ensure the NQF is still meeting its goal of improving the delivery of high quality education and care as effectively and efficiently as possible.

The Government says the Review will identify what is working well, areas for improvement and any unintended consequences resulting from implementation of the NQF.

As part of the Review the Government is holding public consultation sessions in May and June in each capital city and selected regional areas and there is also an online submission process.

Why you should run parent satisfaction surveys
Have you ever stopped to think about how you are doing in the eyes of the parents who use your service? Many services focus on their ACECQA accreditation and ensuring the best outcome from the assessment process. This is, obviously an important priority for the service and a sensible point of focus.

However, taking the time to conduct a brief survey of your parent community could be a valuable source of feedback and help you identify small areas of change which could drive significant improvements in the way you run the service.

This doesn't need to be a burdensome undertaking, a few short questions with multiple choice answers and a couple of boxes for comments and the ability to remain anonymous could help you reach parents who are reluctant to come forward with their thoughts and opinions.
