Welcome, this week with growing evidence to support the benefits of intergenerational care, researchers from Griffith University are making the case for new training and qualifications to support the sustainability of these programs. Also, a reminder about the importance of wellbeing for early childhood staff.
Could your future career be intergenerational care?
New career pathways in intergenerational care practice may be the way of the future according to Griffith University researchers, opening an opportunity for early childhood educators to broaden both their experience and skill sets.

Work can be stressful - Self care 101
With 2020 in full swing and many New Year resolutions gathering dust it's a great time to check-in on the wellbeing of your team members and implement some self-care initiatives.

Working in early childhood education and care brings many rewards and responsibilities but there are also challenges and difficulties to overcome. The highly physical and psychologically demanding nature of working with children means it's easy to become tired, stressed and overwhelmed.

This can quickly lead to reduced performance, increased absenteeism and high staff turnover as well as low morale and motivation.
