Aboriginal Early Childhood Collective Products

The Aboriginal Early Childhood Collective has developed a range of products to cater to all learning styles, paces, environments and budgets. We acknowledge that everyone learns differently, and as such we have deliberately tried to deliver our products through a variety of different modes including text, audio, visual and face to face to ensure our inclusivity of educators needs and preferences. We call this our learning lifecycle. It means that no matter where you are up to in your journey, we are here to support you.




The Aboriginal Early Childhood Practice Guide is a great place to start! Based on five over arching principles that dovetail the outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework, the Practice Guide has been created to debunk the myths surrounding Aboriginal perspectives in early childhood curricula and clarify what it is and what it isn’t. Following, are stories of practice from early childhood educators working in diverse contexts. These case studies affirm that the knowing is in the doing, stressing the importance of transferring, adapting and contextualising the principles into each community and early learning service.





Pick up a copy of The Aboriginal Early Childhood PLANNING Guide. Intended as a sister and companion to the professions beloved Practice Guide, the planner is a working book with QR coded videos ensconced throughout, guiding the user on a self-paced journey of reconciliation.

The Aboriginal Art Summit will explore visual, performing, digital and creative arts in the context of educational and community settings.


The Aboriginal Art Summit will feature an incredible line up of Aboriginal artists, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous educators engaging with Aboriginal artists in their everyday practices, community arts and art projects.


A focus on the ways in which Aboriginal art can be engaged in educational and community settings will enable delegates to explore their pedagogical practices to plan for respectful inclusion of Aboriginal art and Aboriginal arts practice.


The Aboriginal Art Summit is designed to reach a myriad of educators. There will be presentations that appeal to beginning educators, presentations designed for educators who are not sure about how to begin engaging with Aboriginal and Aboriginal artists in their programs, as well as inspiring content for experienced educators looking for a challenge to take their curriculum practices forward.


This online summit enables engagement individually or in teams.


Science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) are ancient knowledge. Because we know that Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the oldest living culture in the world, the sciences, technologies, engineering and maths knowledge and practices are the most developed and sophisticated on this planet. The Aboriginal STEM Suite is a selection of the presentations from The Aboriginal STEM Summit 2020.
The Aboriginal STEM Suite is an inspiring set of online presentations from Aboriginal and non-Indigenous presenters sharing the ways in which they engage with Aboriginal STEM knowledge and approaches in educational and community practice.
The Aboriginal STEM Suite includes 8 presentations and accompanying PDF worksheets with reflective questions, notes and links to relevant resources to support you to bring Aboriginal STEM knowledge and practices into your everyday curriculum.

Finally, The Aboriginal Early Childhood Webinar Series takes in in depth look into The Aboriginal Early Childhood Practice Guide, breaking down each of the five principles into consumable pieces. These products can be purchased individually or as a discounted bundle. One of the biggest obstacles in our profession is that educational leaders struggle to get everyone on the same page. It can be challenging to have the whole team attend professional development training at the same time and inevitably when team changes occur educational leaders can find it hard to bring new educators up to speed. The Aboriginal Early Childhood Webinar Series combats these challenges for you.
