Every Child – Vol.19 No.3 2013 – Celebrating 75 years of ECA
In this issue of Every Child we celebrate 75 years of Early Childhood Australia as an advocacy organisation. Margaret Young reflects on the history of ECA and outlines what still needs to be achieved in the future for early childhood. For the guest statement, Vicki Rundle discusses her experience with the national quality reforms for early childhood education and care.
A number of topics included will provide the opportunity to open discussion. Marcelle Holliday delves into the topic of formal learning for young children and whether it is beneficial, and an article from Kathy Swinkels discusses the mathematical concepts that children learn through interactions that occur every day.
