Professional Development Workshop: Building Authentic Relationships with Aboriginal Families and Communities

  • FKA Children's Services (map)

In this Professional Development we will share Dr. Sue Atkinson Lopez’s PhD research “Indigenous Early Childhood Curriculum and Self Determination” which has a focus on “What Aboriginal Parents Want for Their Children Attending Early Childhood Services”. Reaching out and shaping genuine and lasting relationships with local Aboriginal families and communities is an important action as a way of embedding Aboriginal curriculum in the everyday program.
 
This is vital knowledge that gives voice to Aboriginal families and their experiences within Early Childhood Services. Participants will gain a greater understanding of Aboriginal culture and feel more confident to support Aboriginal inclusive practise in their services. You will be inspired by the stories of Early Childhood Professionals that have made a commitment to Reconciliation. Educators will also develop a resource they can share with children and families they work with. This workshop includes group work storytelling and hands on art experience. The event will be held at FKA Children's Services, and the cost will be $100.
