Lecturer, Early Years

Overview


My experience as an early childhood practitioner, both in preschool, and in supported playgroup informs, strengthens and adds credibility to my research interests. These include:
- early childhood education
- inclusion of children with disabilities in early childhood education and care (ECEC) centres
- working with families of children with disabilities
- engagement and participation of children with disabilities.

Underpinned by an ecological framework, my research around inclusion of children with disabilities in ECEC centres recognises the importance of a collaborative approach; in particular between parents and early childhood educators. I am committed to the rights of all children, and the synergy between my role as an academic and a practitioner put me in a unique space as a researcher in the field.
