Every Child – Vol.19 No.2 2013 – Reconciliation, recognition and respect


In this issue of Every Child the focus is on reconciliation. Reconciliation can be recognised in a number of ways and can be a part of any early childhood service, regardless of whether Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are enrolled. This issue of Every Child contains many sources of information and resources that can help you on your reconciliation journey.

An article of reflection by Shelley Forbes provides insight into the National Quality Framework assessment and rating process from the Alice Springs Child Care Centre.
