What is quality – and what is the educator’s role in quality? This webinar thinks critically about quality in early childhood education and care and explores how to develop, lead and maintain quality and share this with children, families and educators. Presenter Sarah Louise Gandolfo explores how each service’s unique philosophy and context can develop to a rich and unique approach to quality, drawing on the strengths of the cultural and community context of the centre.
