Welcome to fka Children's Services (fkaCS) eNewsletter for Term 2, 2020!
It has been one of the most challenging terms on record for Australian education, but thanks to the dedication and innovation of Early Childhood Educators and Teachers, we have managed to maintain our relationships with children and families and connection to community.
As we begin to head back to a familiar, albeit amended way of providing education and care, we reflect on how we have engaged with children and families in the past, during this period of remote learning, and how we may differently do so in the future.
In this edition, Catherine Hydon ask us to reimagine how we might go forward in our relationships with families, and VCAA’s new resource Supporting Bilingualism, Multilingualism and Language Learning in the Early Years gives us a new approach to support multilingual communities. fkaCS consultants offer practical advice about supporting children and families as they return to our programs and services and the importance of continuing to support families and children to maintain and further develop their languages.
fkaCS remains open and continues to support Victorian Early Childhood Education and Care services via phone, email and online platforms such as Zoom, WebEx and Microsoft Teams. Our consultants are currently working a mixture of home and office hours and we will continue to review our onsite activity as per advice from the chief medical officer. We will let you know about any changes as soon as possible.
