Congratulations to our Early Learning educators who were finalists in this year’s Victorian Early Years Awards.
Julie Fitt, Director of St. Columbas Uniting Kindergarten in Sale, was a finalist in the Early Childhood Teacher of the Year Award category. Her nomination recognises Julie’s philosophy of teaching children to have respect for themselves, others, and the environment, coupled with her commitment to her staff’s ongoing professional development.

The team at Buninyong Uniting Kindergarten were finalists in the Continuity of Early Learning Award category. In partnership with Buninyong Primary School, they were recognised for initiating a collaborative action research project which continues to shape positive outcomes for children transitioning to school from kindergarten.

While they didn’t take home an award, it was an absolute honour to see our early learning educators be amongst those celebrated and acknowledged for their achievements and dedication.
The Victorian Early Years Awards were held on Wednesday, 9 November and attended by Minister for Early Childhood and Pre-Prep Ms Ingrid Stitt MLC.
