About the Event
Creating Engaging Environments in OSHC
Facilitated by Rarni Rothwell
The OSHC environment is more than where a service operates. MTOP V2.0 reminds us of the many facets of SAC environments including physical, temporal, intellectual, social and emotional. They play a significant role in determining the quality of the service and heavily influence children’s behaviour. But OSHC spaces are frequently chosen for their availability not suitability. Often services and educators lack the funds, flexibility or expertise necessary to make the learning environment appropriate to their needs. Improvements, even cosmetic ones, can seem overwhelming.
The aim of this session is to build your expertise and reframe your OSHC spaces as places. Places of play, leisure, wellbeing, learning and development. Places for belonging, being and becoming. Places that invite participation, engagement and initiative and supports constructive relationships between children and between children and adults. Small changes can make a large difference and low-cost solutions can have a high impact on the atmosphere and effectiveness of the program. Rather than thinking of the program as happening in the environment, the environment is the program. Join us to help build up your place-based pedagogy!
This session is suited to OSHC professionals at all career stages.
