Over 2022, the REAIE Perth Network will use the conceptual thread of ‘connection’ to guide our collective research with children.

We encourage everyone to join us as we share conversations about the Connections Project to date. There will be opportunities to share your research and documentation. We invite you to come along, even if the project has not yet commenced as fully in your centre as you may have liked. This is an opportunity to re-engage with the project, to share your questions, ideas, concerns and challenges. It will be an evening of dialogue, sharing and collaboration.
