How do we consider neurodiversities in our teaching and learning?

April is a month dedicated to Autism Awareness, so you may be asking what can I/we do, and how can I/we be doing this as an ongoing practice, rather than just as a notion this month? How can we rethink the idea of Autism Awareness Month in its beautiful blue hues, as...

What are we collecting and displaying?

Imagine someone coming into your house, and there on the fridge……… is your chart. Your special chart detailing toileting rhythms………what you’ve eaten………. Just imagine how you, and perhaps you and your family, might feel if that was there for all to see!! Have you...

Childism and children as activists

[Livvy and Indi, ch.16] An important practice in anti-bias work is to honour the authentic voice. Who better to write about childism and children as activists than children? In this chapter, lifelong friends Livvy and Indi (both nine at time of writing)...

Caring for children with an intersex variation

[Agli Zavros-Orr, ch.14] You likely know the ‘I’ in LGBTQIA+ stands for ‘Intersex’, but have you wondered what that really means, particularly for children, families and educators in your setting?  If ‘yes’, then this chapter in the 4th Edition of...

It’s no longer enough to be Culturally Competent…

One of the practices of the learning frameworks has always been cultural competence. The EYLF told us that “Educators who are culturally competent respect multiple cultural ways of knowing, seeing and living, celebrate the benefits of diversity and...

Question everything. (Or why do we have a birthday chart?)

Critical reflection, as we know is vitally important in our practice as educators. It is critical reflection that enables us to know if we are perpetuating injustice through our practice. If we are truly focusing on inclusion, if we are embedding the...

Psst… can you actually graduate from Early Education and Care

Anti-Bias Approaches in Curriculum

What does bias look like to you? What does anti-bias look like? In your setting, does thinking about ‘doing’ anti-bias send a thrill up your spine? … does it challenge, or even mystify you? Whether you tip-toe or jump with a splash into the 4th edition of The...

So… what are you doing at your centre for Fairy Bread Day?

Come on, surely you must know FBD? It’s that day that celebrates those gorgeous multicoloured dots that marry so perfectly with white sliced bread and lashings of butter for the fussy, or marg for the rest of us. It’s a uniquely Australian Day and given the close link...

Inclusion isn’t just about environments

The word “gender” should not scare anyone… 

Gender is important in education and care. It’s the word that describes the social and cultural representation of the different sexes. It’s about the characteristics of women, men, girls and boys that are socially constructed.How do we understand what a girl or an...

What’s not to love about harmony?

Well, nothing. Harmony is wonderful. Harmony Day is also a good time to ask: how are anti-bias and anti-racist pedagogies woven through our curriculum every day, not just today? What is the difference between harmony and...

Embrace Equity

Do you acknowledge International Women’s Day at your service? Why? Why not? International Women’s Day (March 8) is a key date in any anti bias calendar. This year’s theme is Embrace Equity. What is equity? And how is it different from equality? And why is it...

The Anzac Day question? 

Over recent decades successive governments have pumped millions of dollars into the commemoration of Anzac Day, turning it into a huge national event and a day to tell a particular story of Australia's history. Should we mark Anzac Day in early childhood settings? As...

What music does to your brain and the brains of children…
