Welcome, this week the government push to promote language learning in preschools and best practice guidelines for vaccinations for child care staff.
ELLA for Early Learning
The government recently announced it would expand funding for the Early Learning Languages Program (ELLA) into a larger number of early learning settings and primary schools to make it possible for more young children to experience a second language.

In announcing the additional funding, Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham, said more than 80,000 children in 2500 preschools across Australia have already been introduced to a second language via ELLA and they are expanding the program.
Exciting Changes in Education
The 2018 KU Annual Conference 'New Frontiers from Strong Foundations' will focus on igniting a new level of excitement for teaching and learning that will propel educators toward “New Frontiers” of education with a sense of anticipation, courage and enthusiasm.

We asked our keynote and sponsored speakers, Steve Sammartino and Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, to share their insights into what is happening in education today and how we can harness that to build strong foundations for future generations.
Vaccinations for early childhood staff
Early childhood educators are at increased risk of contracting a range of vaccine preventable diseases through their regular and ongoing contact with children. There is also a chance staff can pass on communicable diseases to children who are either too young to have had all their injections or who can't be vaccinated for medical reasons.

To protect yourself and the children in your service it's important to keep your vaccinations up-to-date, and while this isn't compulsory for early childhood staff it's highly recommended.
