City of Wyndham: Collaborative partnerships with families and communities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds

Session Summary
The practice principles of the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) emphasise the importance of developing respectful relationships with families that embrace and respond to the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Victorian community and diverse approaches to child rearing' (VEYLDF, p4). They also acknowledge that successful outcomes for children occur when their learning environments promote the values of equity and diversity (VEYLDF, p12).

This session will provide early childhood teachers with an opportunity to reflect on how outcomes for children are shaped by the pedagogical practice of their teachers, and their responses to the cultural and linguistic identities of the children and families attending their services.

Learning Outcomes

  • Critically reflect on pedagogical practice in building collaborative relationships with families and communities.

  • Identify and plan the implementation of orientation and enrolment processes that are based on culturally responsive and respectful practice.

  • Enhance skills to support children’s positive transition to school.
