"Koori Curriculum is my 'go to' resource for connecting the little one with her culture, be it through books and toys purchased via the website or tips on connecting with the community thanks to Jess's updates on Facebook."

"I recently purchased from Koori Curriculum. I chose this company because we were in need of some Indigenous inspired books that were also child friendly which we could link to children’s development. I found working with Koori Curriculum to be an enjoyable experience as they assisted me with many ideas I wanted to achieve. This is a great company which provide many amazing resources and I would definitely purchase more products soon.”

"Living in the Central West of NSW on beautiful Wiradjuri country can sometimes present issues with accessing high quality professional development. Jessica Staines from the Kooricurriculum has developed and provided amazing, down to earth, inclusive opportunities online. Using these resources, I have developed my understandings of how to embed aboriginal culture into the everyday practice of our centre with the team of educators. Individual, small group or even whole team training can be organised. The opportunities provided by Jess have also enabled me to participate in an online yarning circle to discover and share ideas of inclusive and progressive practice alongside other early childhood educators from around Australia. This really has been a new way of learning and sharing for me but has been the key to opening many doors!"
