Whilst it can be daunting to embed Aboriginal perspectives in your program, we know it can be particularly challenging for educators working with infants. In our experience, we find that many educators working with 0-1’s struggle to find age-appropriate and meaningful ways to share culture with this age group.

Join us for a transformative live webinar tailored for educators working with infants, designed to equip educators with the skills and knowledge they need to incorporate Aboriginal perspectives into their curriculum.

This session will include:


Cultural relevance: Understand the significance of cultural relevance in the early years, learning to construct educational experiences that reflect and respect the diverse histories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Inclusive Practice: Discover how to fluidly integrate Aboriginal perspectives within your program. Learn how to thoughtfully weave cultural elements throughout learning experiences rather than adding on as an afterthought.

Hands-on practical tools: Gain practical advice on including Indigenous knowledge in daily activities, from creating culturally rich environments to developing curriculum content that respects and celebrates First Nations cultures.

Cultural Confidence: Educators will learn to navigate and alleviate the common concerns and challenges of incorporating Aboriginal perspectives, particularly in settings with very young children.

Designed for infants: Participants will receive guidance on practical, respectful ways to introduce cultural concepts that resonate with infants, fostering early respect and appreciation for Indigenous culture.

 
Led by Jessica Staines, director of the multi-award-winning Koori Curriculum and a passionate advocate for inclusive education, the webinar will provide personal insights and strategies developed through direct experience in both professional and personal settings.

This session is suitable for:

Educational Leaders

Early Childhood Educators

Infant and Toddler specialists

Family Dare Care Educators

Parents and Carers

Anyone interested in how to share Aboriginal culture with infants!


Prepare to transform your educational approach and practice. Our session will provide you with the tools to effectively integrate Indigenous perspectives into your teaching, helping you construct a learning environment that is not only inclusive but also celebrative of Australia's First Nations cultures.


Secure your spot today, and take a significant step towards becoming a more culturally capable educator.

Outcome 1.1: Children feel safe, secure and supported when they for example access resources that support cultural diversity, family structures and gender identities. 

Outcome 1.1: Children feel safe, secure and supported when educators enable children to see their culture in the environment, e.g: Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander art from the local region, cultural events that are significant to a child’s life. 

Outcome 2.2: Children respond to diversity with respect. Educators support this learning when they for example ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources are genuine and appropriate

Outcome 3.2: Children become strong in their physical learning and mental wellbeing. Educators promote this learning when they for example draw on diverse family and community experiences and expertise to include familiar games and physical activities in play. 

Outcome 3.3 Children are aware of and develop strategies to support their own mental and physical health and personal safety. Educators support this learning when they for example create culturally safe and appropriate learning experiences and spaces e.g. reflect children’s cultures in the setting. 

Please note: the webinar will be live and not recorded.
