Welcome to the Koori Curriculum Educator Community for Families. My name is Jessica Staines, I’m a Wiradjuri Woman, Early Childhood Teacher and Director of the Koori Curriculum and The Aboriginal Early Childhood Collective.
This group was created to ensure families have a safe online space where they can unlearn, re-learn and investigate ways to authentically support the embedding of Aboriginal perspectives in their child's education and or home life. Everyone is at different stages of their journey so its important to be respectful and remember that we are all here for the same purpose and goal.
This community allows us to collaborate, investigate, mentor and inspire one another whilst reflecting on how we can respectfully incorporate an Aboriginal perspective into our lives. It is important to be aware that there is no blanket approach to doing this work and all experiences are usually relative to the individual. Therefore, occasionally there may be conflicting advice and perspectives and its important that when this occurs we are all mindful of one another.
