The Central Goldfields Early Years Forum is a Community of Practice for professionals with an interest in the early years education and care in the Central Goldfields Shire.
The Forum meets in person (or online – when Covid restrictions are in place). It also provides an opportunity for informal networking, information sharing and professional development. Any requests or ideas for topics to be covered at future forums can be provided through to Go Goldfields.
Past workshops include; Speech and Language: Early intervention before school with MDHS Speech Pathologists providing information to support Phonological Awareness; the Curator and Education Officer at Central Goldfields Art Gallery providing information about the 12-month creative program in collaboration with educators from the Goldfields Family Centre Kindergarten; Roles and resources for the embedding of aboriginal perspectives into services with the Bendigo and District Aboriginal Cooperative (BDAC) and the Koorie Education Support Officer (DET), and; Workshops about preparations for transitions from kindergarten to school.
Leadership is provided by the Forum Committee members and Go Goldfields.
