What the Early Learning Work Matters project revealed

Reports of the ECEC workforce crisis, educator burnout, insufficient pay, and a lack of professional respect have recently been prevalent in the media. These reports are backed up by studies such as CELA’s Early Childhood Education and Care Workforce Survey Pulse Check, which showed that demand for places, alongside staff absences due to illnesses, professional fatigue and caring for sick family members, are impacting services’ capacity to operate.  

The University of Sydney is currently conducting a study called the Early Learning Work Matters Project (ELWM). The study aims to provide more information about educator workload and how it relates to quality education and care. This week we share results from the study’s initial phase and how you can share your experiences relating to workload through their survey.

The role of guided play in early education and care

Guided play, or scaffolding, has long been lauded in early childhood as a powerful tool to support children’s learning outcomes. In recent research, brain activity tracking of child-parent duos during play revealed the benefits of guided play via brain synchronisation.

We explore the neuroscience of guided play and how educators can harness this concept to inform everyday practice.
