Bring a sense of fun with you as well as comfortable clothing and join in some song and dance! We are not auditioning for “The Voice” or "Australian Idol”, so come along and learn how music and movement can make your programme run smoothly and be a practical part of each day!
The aim of this workshop is to:
Assist participants to feel confident in facilitating musical experiences that are developmentally appropriate and fun for all without having to resort to playing a CD
Look at the value of music and movement for every child’s development
Explore how music and movement fits into the Practice Principals of the EYLF and supports the child’s sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming
Leave with practical ideas for easy props to make to support music, along with program techniques to encourage smooth transitions within the flow of the day
Assist you with learning new songs as well as consolidating familiar ones
Presented by: Jo Morel
Where: Northcote Town Hall

Network of Community Activities in partnership with Play Australia and Community Child Care Victoria are delighted to present a unique opportunity to hear from two of the world’s leading researchers on play at two very special events. An opportunity not to be missed by anybody with an interest in play, play spaces or children’s development.
Dr Wendy Russell, Senior Lecturer - Play and Playwork/Professional Studies in Children's Play, University of Gloucestershire
Stuart Lester, Senior Lecturer - Play and Playwork/Professional Studies in Children's Play, University of Gloucestershire
Enrichment and Enchantment: Playing as a very ordinary magic
In this presentation, Stuart Lester and Wendy Russell explore other ways of thinking about enrichment and children's right to play and propose that we as adults have an ethical and political responsibilty to support conditions in which moments of playfullness can emerge. They take a step sideways from the predominant focus on the universal, the rational and the technical to see what ideas of enchantment, everyday magic and the nonsense of playing might have to offer and how ‘collective wisdom’ can support children’s right to play at an everyday relational level.
