Toddlers danced with Dora, took photos with Peppa Pig and kicked a soccer ball with SpongeBob while parents got down - and didn’t mind getting a little dirty with their “tiny tigers and fairy princesses” in the baby play area during Playgroup NSW’s “World’s Biggest Playgroup Day”. Wet weather did not deter the 4000 mums, dads, carers, grand parents and children who descended, in an assortment of colourful and character rain coats, on Luna Park on Wednesday March 26, some travelling from as far as Bathurst and Coffs Harbour for the day specifically to attend the event.
Educational Experience was recently heavily represented at the first official National Quality Framework conference. Hosted by The Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) in Sydney. The event was held over two days with more than 950 delegates involved in a variety of professional development sessions. This was a truly national conference. The diverse range of participants was one of the reasons for the overwhelming success of the sold out conference. There were representatives from every region and state of Australia, all bringing together their unique stories of how the NQF has been implemented. Our representatives included National Sales Manager, Georgina Picton who said that ‘Educational Experience showed our support for the NQF Conference with two booths, packed full of brilliant educational resources.’
