This resource offers individuals and/or the team an interactive, journal to encourage critical reflection and deeper understanding around current practices. Each chapter highlights a focus that is uniquely articulated within different organisations and is worthy of pausing to ponder why and how your service have evolved in such a way.

Using personal examples, current research, information, reflective questions and activities, this resource will guide practitioners in ensuring the decisions they make around environments for children are based on authentic and responsive determinations, not because “this is the way things have always been done”.

This is the perfect companion for your Weekly Programming and Reflection Diaries.

What the readers say

"I learnt a lot about myself as an Educator. The activities are simple yet effective in achieving their outcome, to pause and ponder. It is well researched, yet very user-friendly. I am hungry for more."
Sabrina Kelly, Director, Family OOSH, Kiama

"It is easy to understand and use, it flows, and most importantly, it collates and documents my critical thinking/reflections. I liked that you reinforced that there are no right or wrong answers. You encourage the Educator to come up with the answer from their own thinking."
Naomi Gates, Director of a local community preschool.

Meet the Authors

Kate Meek and Annie O'Sullivan, Early Years Education Specialists.

Early Years Education Specialists (EYES) evolved after a few years and lots of cups of tea as we pondered our own experiences in the education and care sector, and took time to respond to the changes, challenges, trends and shifts in understanding as dedicated professionals. 

Despite our recent move from our work as face-to-face teachers, leaders and colleagues into the world of adult learning, our own ethos of lifelong learning continues as we both completed Master’s degrees and currently work more broadly with beginning teachers and educators. This new perspective, couple with our practice roles, has resulted in a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge that is underpinned by current thinking and research.
