Early Childhood Education and Care News
March 17, 2020
Welcome this week how to be a great early childhood leader. Also, it's not too late to get involved in Harmony Week, happening right now. Read our easy, cost effective ideas for celebrating the theme "Everyone Belongs", also where you should go for the most recent and reliable information on COVID-19.
Leadership and collaboration
The dictionary definition of leadership is "the action of leading a group of people or an organisation". But, as all early childhood managers will understand, it's more complicated than this. Good leadership embraces many qualities and there are as many definitions of leadership as there are leaders.

In early childhood education an Educational Leader is required to develop, support, encourage and motivate their team, as well as modelling a high standard of practice, knowledge and care. Embedded in the National Quality Standard, the educational leader is also responsible for leading the development of the curriculum at the service.
Embracing diversity in Harmony Week
Get ready to wrap yourself – and the classroom – in shades of orange as Harmony Week headlines celebrations across the country. This week-long festival runs from 15-21 March, culminating in Harmony Day on Saturday 21 March, and is an opportunity to recognise the wide range of people and cultures that make up Australia.

Harmony week is a wonderful time for early childhood services to celebrate and raise children's awareness and appreciation of the diverse cultures around them. The orange icing on top of the cake is Harmony Day, which coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
COVID-19 Information for ECEC
The rapidly changing circumstances around the spread and containment efforts of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) mean the best sources of information for early learning services are the regularly updated bulletins coming from government sources.
