Questions for Childcare Workers in Australia

Post by samprivett » Tue Jul 19, 2016 11:28 pm

Hi all,

I am hoping you may be able to help.

I am currently researching Australian childcare and any links, similarities and differences there may be between Australia and England.

I am studying at Canterbury Christ Church University and would be looking for any interested childcare workers to drop me a message...?


The primary focus of the research is to establish from a 'working' level how you feel the current policies and procedures in Australia work for you and the children at you settings.

If you think you could help at all please let me know,


Mt email address in the UK is: sam.privett100@sky.com


Thanks so much

So your main focus is for us to discuss how we feel about the policies and procedures within our service?

Hi,

Thanks so much for your reply,

Yes please, I am hoping to see from a working prospective what you think of he policies and procedures you have to adhere to.

In England we have regulations and requirements from the government which are put into place and inspected by Ofsted.

Our current curriculum is 0-5 years and is called the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)

From the research I have undertaken Australia has had some quite recent changes to your policies and regulations.

Have these impacted on your practice?

What is/are your main concern/s if any from the changes implemented.?

Anything along these lines would be immensely helpful.

Thanks again

Samantha :) x
