In the Early Years Learning Framework, intentional teaching is seen as being a way of working with children and families that is “… deliberate, purposeful and thoughtful” (p.15).  However, what does this really look like and mean in practice?  How can educators be thoughtful about what they do and why they do things? What are the core meanings of this word ‘thoughtful’ and how can these meanings be used in our work with children?

This workshop will unravel these kinds of questions and offer participants tools for understanding how ‘being intentional’ can enhance and actively promote children’s learning through the planning cycle.


Completing ‘Being Intentional: The Thoughtful Teacher’ will contribute 3 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 3.3.2 from The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
