‘My Time, Our Place’, Framework is designed to inspire conversations, improve communication and provide a common language about children’s play, leisure and learning among children themselves, their families, the broader community, school age care educators and other professionals.
Educators encourage children’s engagement in a range of play and leisure experiences that allow them to feel happy, safe and relaxed, and to interact with friends, practice social skills, solve problems, try new experiences, and learn life skills.
Educators providing education and care to school age children need to have the skills and understandings about the many facets of children’s lives and what it means to support their learning and care for them in a school age care setting.
The Educators’ Guide has been developed to support the professional practice of those who are responsible for the interactions, experiences, routines and events, planned and unplanned, that occur in a school age care environment designed to foster children’s wellbeing, development and learning. It focuses on aspects of pedagogy including building and nurturing relationships, program decision-making, teaching and learning.
