PDA Preschool Country Cabinet

9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Port Pirie Sports Precinct 50 Mary Elie St, Port Pirie SA 5540, Australia

The Preschool Directors Association invites preschool leaders and their teams to join the Board of PDA in a forum to discuss the challenges and opportunities unique to country preschools.

Forum : a meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.

At this forum, we’re bringing together the finest minds in preschool education – yours!  to share perspectives, exchange ideas, and dive deep into all things preschool. Whether you’re a seasoned educator or a fresh face in the field, your insights are invaluable as we collectively shape the future of early childhood education.

PDA is keen to listen to your experience of delivering preschool in country areas and will use your stories to develop and strengthen our advocacy with DfE and the State Government.

Preschool in SA is set to change with the recommendations of the Royal Commission into ECEC to be implemented over the next decade. PDA is keen to ensure our country-based preschools understand what is being proposed and have the opportunity to contribute to what this might look like in country SA.

Here’s what you can expect:

Networking Opportunities: Connect with DfE colleagues, PDA Board Members and DfE Central Office staff about preschool in your area.

Open Dialogue: Share your experiences, challenges, and innovative ideas in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Collaborative Problem-Solving: Engage in productive discussions aimed at addressing key issues and improving preschool education in Port Pirie and beyond.

Date: Friday 19th July 2024

Time: 9:00 am to 2:00 pm

Where: Port Pirie Sports Precinct,  50 Mary Elie St, Port Pirie

Joining the PDA Board for this important dialogue will be Jess Ellis and Asha Crozier from the DfE 3-year-old preschool team. Jess and Asha will provide the latest updates on plans for 3-year-old preschool and seek your valuable perspectives on how to best support preschools and their teams through the impending changes. Your participation and input are vital as we collectively navigate this transformative period in preschool education.
