The Heart of the Matter - Developing a meaningful and authentic statement of philosophy


What exactly is a Statement of Philosophy?

How do we develop one?

How do we make it authentic, truly reflecting our local context?

How can we make this process meaningful and useful rather than just another task in our busy schedule?

Under the NQF every service is required to develop a Statement of Philosophy in consultation with educators, children and families. 

This webinar will support you to deepen your understandings around what makes an effective Statement of Philosophy.  We will explore some key strategies and processes that you can use to develop a rich, authentic Statement of Philosophy together with colleagues, families, children and community.
