Are we too child-centred?

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

The National Quality Framework, at its most fundamental level, is about positive outcomes for children in their learning and wellbeing. It sets the standard for quality, and raises the bar for the provision of children’s services in Australia. But the people who are expected to deliver this reform for Australia, educators, are paid low wages, work in shifts, and often aren’t recognised as professionals. Is it time to ask - are we too child-centred in our work, and what does that mean for educators?
