Welcome, ever put on a CD for the kids in your service to boogey around to? You could be in breach of copyright laws, read our article for more information, also a great new resource for early childhood services on their role in building better brains in small children.
New Resource:
Building better brains
People who work in early childhood have a unique appreciation for the importance of the young years for the future health and wellbeing of children. Early interactions and experiences have a powerful influence on children and can significantly impact their future development.

To facilitate better understanding about the important role early childhood education and care providers have on children the Centre for Community Child Health has released this fantastic animated video which highlights the importance of building better brains in the early years.

The four-minute clip was developed by the Canadian Alberta Family Wellness Initiative and presents the core story of brain development in an accessible and visually engaging format for public audiences.

The video covers developmental influences such as good stress and toxic stress and provides tips on how early childhood providers can become brain builders.

Copyright laws in early childhood settings
Have you ever put a CD on to create a relaxing environment while the kids in your service nap or to rev them up for a dance session? Have you ever copied pages in a book to use as part of a learning experience? Did you know that if you are a for-profit service you need an Early Education Copyright Licence to use these materials and not be in breach of copyright laws?

According to Early Childhood Australia copyright laws exist to protect the rights of creators and those who invest in them to make sure that they are fairly paid for the use of their work. For early childhood providers using creative materials such as books, music and art is a common practice and it can be confusing trying to work out what you can use without a license and where you might be in violation of copyright laws.

It's important to remember that the Copyright Act grants creators of original works – like literary, dramatic, artistic or musical works – a bundle of rights. These rights are granted automatically and don't need to be registered for protection. They are exclusive rights given to the creators; which means that if anyone else wants to do any of these things, they must have the permission of those creators first.
