Children's first years shape who they will become and Education and Care practitioners play a significant part in shaping that future. A positive and productive future for children means a positive and productive future for families, community and the nation.
We believe that those working in Education and Care need to be highly skilled, qualified, caring and critically reflective practitioners. As such deserve professional recognition and acknowledgement of the unique set of skills and expertise associated with the field from community, other professionals and government.
We acknowledge and honour the vitally important role of Education and Care practitioners and aim to provide information, knowledge and support through reflective, participatory learning and ongoing professional development opportunities.
To engage respectfully and collaboratively in a manner that will encourage, empower and enable practitioners to grow personally and professionally.
