Early childhood is a significant period in any individuals life. It is when the neural frameworks are laid down for life long learning, a period of time which is optimum for setting children up for life to succeed to their best ability. The National Early Childhood Agenda supports the best outcomes for children, families and society. Investment in curriculum, high quality early childhood settings and a knowledgeable early childhood workforce is essential to support the best outcomes. This film is about that. Its about why the early years matter and why we need educators who enjoy working alongside and with young children, who are knowledgeable, who see learning as a two way experience - for child and adult.
Filmed across early childhood settings in the Riverina towns of Griffith, Leeton and Wagga Wagga. A variety of Early Childhood settings were used - Family Day Care, Long Day Care, Preschool and Mobile Children's Services and the educators who were interviewed represent all those service types. Funded through the Australian Federal Government.
While it is many service types, its still one story - the story of children, play, learning and most importantly unleashed potential.
