Gowrie Australia: Reflections

Gowrie Australia Reflections

From 2016 Reflections produces by Gowrie Australia, has a new refreshed and revised format. Once a hard-copy quarterly early education and care magazine, Reflections will now produce articles digitally every month. It is believed that this new look and feel is better suited to the opportunities for more spontaneous reading as well as discussion starters for professional reflection.

Reflections can be downloaded for free on each Gowrie website listed below.

The Early Years Learning Framework

EYLF – Assessment in the Early Years

With the Introduction of the EYLF, staff from Gowrie centres across Australia have been working together in a project to review the range of possibilities for ways of approaching assessment. Our work has led to the development of a resource – Assessment in the Early Years: A Resource from Gowrie Australia drawing on the Early Years Learning Framework.

We never stop learning

The Lady gets a makeover!

Our new identity is founded on our philosophy and passion for education, while it also reflects our proud history and bright future in all aspects of early childhood education.

At its core is a clever evolution of our beginnings here in Queensland, and incorporates the colour jacaranda, as was Lady Gowries wishes when she opened Love Street.

We prepare children for life, and feel our new identity better prepares us for who we are as an organisation helping the next generations of Queensland families.
