Early Childhood Education and Care News
August 25, 2020
Welcome, this week new research from the University of Gothenburg which compares the experiences and responses of early childhood services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, educational and fun shark crafts to support learning around these formidable ocean dwellers.
International approaches to lockdown in early childhood settings
In Australia, early childhood centres stayed open in the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and while this changed in some parts of Victoria in the second wave, for the most part early childhood settings were deemed safe.

This contrasts with the decisions made in other countries, where many early childhood settings were closed down, according to a new study from the University of Gothenburg.

The study describes how preschools and preschool teachers in Sweden, Norway and the United States acted when the coronavirus pandemic struck in March.
Sharks with Sharp Teeth - Craft
Did you know sharks have been around for more than 420 million years and predate the dinosaurs, which roamed the earth a mere 230 million years ago! These apex predators have got a bad rap from movies and the news media, but the truth is most sharks should be more afraid of us than we should be of them.

Humans kill around 100 million sharks every year, while they cause an average of seven deaths and 70 attacks each year. In fact, the odds of being attacked by a shark are 1 in 11.5 million while the odds of being struck by lightning is 1 in 600,000.

Children love sharks and this week's ocean themed craft ideas and to talk to the children in your service about the important role sharks play in our ocean ecosystems.
