In this episode of Educator Yarns Jess chats with Sandra Dos Reis & Kathryn Albany from Deborah Little Early Learning Centre.
Sandra and Kathryn share with Jess their journey in moving from 'we don't know how' towards confidence, the power of mentoring, how they built connections with community, the way they work with children on Country and how their embedding perspectives and approaches are not a tokenistic pedagogy.
Sandra is a director, teacher and passionate advocate for inclusion. After working in early childhood, she completed her degree in 2016 and has been teaching ever since. Her work at Inner West Council now involves leading a large centre with many educators, driving positive changes along the way as she engages with children, families and the community.
Kathryn has been teaching since 2019, after realising the impact that early childhood educators had on her own children. She has led projects on diversity and nature pedagogy with children and colleagues. Kathryn is enthusiastic about sharing her pedagogy and practice with colleagues.
