NEW! Hands on Science: Embedding science into your program with three and four year olds
Wednesday, 12th April
9.30am - 12.30pm
This new session will give you some practical ideas so that you can scaffold children’s learning dispositions and build a love of science and discovery. Chemistry, physics and biology are big words, but even young children can engage in rich scientific learning, through holistic approaches to planning, and engaging learning environments.

NEW! Emergent Inquiry: Behind the Scenes
Wednesday, 14th June
9.30am - 12.30pm
If you are wondering what inquiry projects can look like for children, this is for you. If you have been exploring emergent curriculum and would like to go further, this is for you. If you are not sure where to begin, this is for you. See how an inquiry project builds in an emergent way, explore the role of the educators in an emergent curriculum and how to document with and for children as the project evolves. With Eleanor Forndran

Inclusion Support Programme
Gowrie SA is pleased to have been selected as the Inclusion Support Programme for South Australia from 1 July 2016. The Inclusion Support Programme is funded by the Australian government to build the capacity of education and care services to include children with special rights within mainstream services. The new Programme brings together inclusion for children with diverse needs and backgrounds. Gowrie SA has an established presence in South Australia and this is an important consideration in a time of change. We will work towards a seamless transition to the new Inclusion Support Programme.

Gowrie Australia has created 7 brand new Theory into Practice sessions and are running these as part of our new calendar learning sessions as well as offering them in-centre to services.
