Early educators hear the latest
THE evolving world of early childhood education was examined at Salt on Friday and Saturday.
More than 350 early childhood teachers, student teachers and practitioners from across New South Wales met for a two-day conference at Peppers at Salt to update their knowledge and hear the latest from experts in the field.
The conference, entitled Inspiring Conversations for Children, was organised by Early Childhood Australia (ECA) New South Wales and Community Connections Solutions Australia, in conjunction with the North Coast RegionalECA group.
Regional president of the ECA, Far North Coast, Wendy Boyd, said the conference enabled trained and training early childhood educators from across the state and region to attend presentations by experts in the field at a picturesque location.
“The venue at Salt is ideally located for regional participants and we are delighted that Tweed mayor Kevin Skinner addressed the conference on Saturday morning,” Ms Boyd said.
“The North Coast branch of ECA is one of the most active early childhood groups in Australia.
“We are extremely proud of our conferences which have grown in att-endances and scope each year.”
