Early Childhood Education and Care News
February 11, 2020
Welcome, this week we take a close look at critical reflection and consider why it is so important in early childhood settings, also Karyn Bliss from Goodstart Early Learning, 28 years in early childhood and still going strong.
How critical reflection can guide learning in your service
Reflective practice in early childhood education sets the stage for critical reflection. This 'next level' approach applies the same system of observing and questioning but goes further by seeking a diversity of opinion and requiring an openness to change.

According to early childhood educator and blogger, Jodie Clarke, the aim of critical reflection is to "Use it as an ongoing tool to build on your current practice and ask important questions not only of those actions, environment and activities but also of why you choose to do those things that way that you do, how theories and perspectives might have informed your approach, how your actions might have impacted on others and what others viewpoints on this approach or action might be."
