Early Childhood Education and Care News
November 17, 2020
Welcome, this week reflecting on the communication and engagement strategies learnt during the COVID-19 lockdown and how we can build bridges with the families in our services. Also, new research shows Australian preschoolers should be eating more vegetables.
Building bridges with families
The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in a period of dramatic change for early learning services. Educators had to shift rapidly to digital communications in response to remote learning demands, safety and social distancing measures.

In many instances the lack of physical connection between families and educators during lockdown changed the relationship and now is a good time to reflect on the lessons learnt and how engagement with families has changed as a result

Many families found a new appreciation for the work of their educators during the early days of COVID-19. Lockdown provided a unique window for families to experience teaching and, for educators, it provided insights into the homes and families of the children in their care.
Is it time for national menu guidelines for early education services?
In the lead up to the holidays with ‘sometimes food’ more readily available than it might be at other times of the year, it is worth pausing to reflect on whether preschool-aged children are consuming enough of the right types of food.

New findings suggest that Australian youngsters may not be getting the right combination of healthy food, which is crucial for their growth and development.
