Committed to the community of Logan, Queensland Carrie strives for better outcomes for young children.  She has been a long-standing member of the Logan Together Action Group influencing how children are viewed in Logan.  Carrie is the lead facilitator of the Charter of Children’s Wellbeing developed and distributed across all of Logan businesses and organizations.  This charter will work towards businesses and council engaging young children in decisions within the community.

Carrie’s experience  with QKLG is extensive as an operator of long day care and pedagogical leader of Rosie's Early learning.  Over this time I have supported and mentored ECT in the delivery of curriculum that aligns with high quality curriculum.  Using the QKLG as a foundation of inspiration, the training sessions will engage teachers to critically consider how they are understanding not just the outcomes but the whole document.

Understanding the foundations of the QKLG is paramount for teachers to develop and deliver learning environments and curriculum to support and develop children in the service.  The above trainings and coaching will engage teachers in the deep critical thought against the criteria of the QKLG.
