  • Why taking a fresh look at what you are currently doing with your paperwork and day to day practice can lead to better time management and opportunities to achieve exceeding.
  • How a Program….when used meaningfully, can achieve MORE than just showing evidence on a wall that you have planned a range of age-appropriate activities and experiences... that may or may not actually get done.
  • How to show EVIDENCE of your ongoing self reflection and use that information to provide quality outcomes for the children and their families in your service.
  • Why being able to explain what you do and why is just as important as showing written 'evidence' when being assessed.
  • How to use simple tools to help you mentor and explain reflection and self improvement in simple terms to other educators unsure of this process. 
  • 6 Core areas to review and focus on first when preparing for an assessment.
  • How to use simple tools and strategies to demonstrate consistent meaningful engagement and partnerships with families.
  • How you can confidently use other methods, actions and your individual strengths in addition to documentation (instead it being your only option!) to meet outcomes and exceed standards.
  • How your Environments and Resources….when used meaningfully, can achieve MORE than just the provision of spaces for children to access toys, craft and play equipment.
