Early Childhood Education and Care News

Welcome, this week how copyright laws apply to early education settings and learn how the 'She Dreams Big' project is working to tackle gender stereotypes through a new series of books.
Copyright laws in early education settings
Have you ever played Spotify or the radio to create a relaxing environment while the children in your service nap, or to rev them up for a dance session? Have you ever photocopied pages in a book to use as part of a learning experience?

Playing and displaying published works of art are great ways to engage and entertain the children in your care, but did you know that any service using the collection from OneMusic Australia (millions and millions of the world's popular music works, books and art you know and love) will likely need a Childcare and Early Learning Services licence to use these materials?
Breaking down gender stereotypes
Boys like trucks, girls like princesses, right? While this may be true in a lot of cases (I know my two-and-a-half-year-old son is obsessed with trucks of all kinds) it seems that these outdated stereotypes have been holding us back from inspiring our children in their early years with the idea that they can do more and be more than society currently assumes.

Michael McGee, Griffith Business School alumnus and father of three young girls, certainly thought so. When looking around for inspiring literature for his smart, driven daughters who were interested in space exploration, he was disappointed to find that most of the kids' books aimed at little girls expected them to be passive, pretty princesses rather than active explorers, adventurers or engineers.

In an effort to change this, McGee co-founded the She Dreams Big project, alongside Rachael McGee and Louise Brown, and the brand was launched on March 5, 2021 at the International Women's Day Long Lunch.
