Inquiry Project

Our 2022 Inquiry Project was another successful collaboration of some of the sector’s most outstanding early childhood professionals and their services.

We are also excited to announce that two of the participating services, Baw Baw Family Day Care and Leopold Child and Family Centre were awarded the Exceeding Rating in all quality areas during the course of this project. Both services referenced their involvement in the Inquiry Project in their assessment process.

Looking for new ideas to support exceeding practice? Fascinated in engaging educators in a project that could make a real difference to children’s safety and contribution to their community? Want to explore ways to design a curriculum that engages children and families in social action? Do you have ongoing road safety issues that negatively impacts on children’s wellbeing?

Watch out for the call for Expressions of Interest in November this year for the 2024 Inquiry Project.
