These are a great addition to add to a Calming Corner.

The Levels For Childcare Wages In Australia Posters enable Educators to determine what classification structure they fall under, according to the Children’s Services Award 2010 that determines their minimum wage. Each Poster gives a definition of the level, qualifications required and the duties an Educator should perform in order to be paid at that particular level. This will help Educators to understand their correct level and their correct pay at that specific level. These Posters should be displayed in the Staff Room or added into the Orientation Pack for Educators so they understand their classification level.
The Encouraging Phrases Posters are examples of encouraging phrases you could use with children throughout the day. These can be displayed within the service as a reminder of positive phrases for Educators to reinforce to children.
Encouragement is a self-esteem enhancing tool that Educators should utilize more often. By using encouragement it focuses on the child rather than on the adult. It helps children to feel that we (adults) are interested in them and in what they are doing. It also shows that we have taken the time to notice how they are feeling.
