Rattler - Issue 130 - March 2020

As we dive into 2020, we’re excited to bring you our first edition of Rattler magazine for the year.

Our March edition includes the first of a series of articles focused around exceeding services, with this edition sharing insights around how NSW South Coast service Narooma Preschool achieved exceeding ratings in all 7 quality areas.

Leanne Gibbs shares the results of her study into ECEC leadership, while Mandy Cooke of Charles Sturt University shares her study into a reconceptualisation of risk-taking in ECE.

Our regular feature ‘Meet the Member’ puts a spotlight on Yulara Children’s Centre Director Renata Harris who has vastly improved the quality and community engagement at this remote service located 26 km from Uluru in Kata Juta National Park.

We investigate the links between early language development and literacy and ask whether screen technology could actually be a catalyst for inspiring children to engage with nature.

Issue 130 is jam packed with insightful articles, inspiring events, sector research and helpful tips.

We also offer an annual subscription
