Reflecting on the image of the child
For the educators of St Nicholas Early Education, a day to come together at the Crowne Plaza in the Hunter Valley as an entire agency to think, share, question and explore new ideas was too good an opportunity to pass up. The guest speaker at the first ever full day of professional learning was Kirsty Liljegren, consultant and lecturer of Reggio Emilia and the Teaching Director of Cornish College Early Learning Centre in Victoria.
