OSHC Network Group – North West
April 7 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm
After last year’s disruptions we are back on track to continue and build on our popular OSHC Network Group sessions across the state with a focus on developing practical skills for individuals and teams working with school age children.
Topics brought forward from last year include: implementing STEM in OSHC, extending on children’s interests and ideas, applying the principles of Playwork to OSHC, identifying and documenting children’s learning, starting clubs in OSHC, developing a leadership program for school age children, exploring arts and crafts, plus integrating opportunities for the development of life skills.
It is intended each OSHC Network session will be delivered face-to-face for 1.5 hours in the greater Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone area. Participants will have an opportunity to delve into topics that will inspire, challenge and create positive opportunities for children.
Locations: TBC closer to each OSHC date
Network session 1: Wednesday 7th April
Developing a makerspace for school age children
In this networking session participants will explore planning and integrating a makerspace into your OSHC setting. Makerspaces are a great addition to your OSHC environment and are designed to engage children in hands-on, collaborative, and creative work. Makerspaces are the perfect platform to enable learning theories such as constructivist, inquiry-based, collaborative learning, project based learning and pedagogy. You will be provided with a range of tools and resources to inspire you and your team in creating the ultimate makerspace for children attending your program.
