A family day care service in regional Victoria has developed deeper connections with their families and the local community since its coordinator and another team member completed Bastow’s Collaborative Partnerships with Families and Communities course delivered by Dr Anne Kennedy and Lynn Turner from Community Child Care Association.
Being geographically separated from their educators and their families is a continual challenge facing the coordination team at Corangamite Shire’s Family Day Care Service. So when Coordinator, Christine Dewhurst, read about the Collaborative Partnerships with Families and Communities course, she knew it was the perfect opportunity to explore fresh approaches to overcoming this perennial problem. Christine invited the service’s Educational Leader Resource Officer, Leanne Amoore, to join her on the course so they could work together to strengthen the coordination unit’s relationships with families.
