In this episode of Educator Yarns, Jess talks with Victoria Edmond from Rainbow Bridge FDC and Big Hearted Education.
Jess and Victoria yarn about some of the barriers that FDC face with embedding Aboriginal perspectives in Family Day Care services in an authentic way. They discuss where educators can find resources that are budget friendly and how they can make connections in Community. Victoria also shares her journey in her own service and why she believes it is important to share with children.
The last 15 years of Victoria’s life have been spent doing what she loves – working in early childhood education. She has worked across multiple disciplines in before and after school care, long day care, and finally settling into family day care which led her to the path of starting Rainbow Bridge Family Day Care Service in 2013.
Working with her educators, she was faced with their everyday challenges. From this point, her passion grew to help educators release their frustrations around programming and assist them to get the many thoughts out of their heads and onto paper – that’s why she created the Big Hearted Education Planner! Finally, a book that has everything educators need to help them to be completely prepared and express their flair and creativity.
We’ve also created a range of courses, such as The Essential Elements, The Profitable FDC and the Kickstarter Course, to support educators in their journey to empower them in being the best educator they can be.
When she is not focused on serving her community of educators, you can find her singing and spending time with her hubby and children.
