Message from the Director

This edition of the newsletter showcases the extent of the work the REEaCh team have undertaken this year. We are proud that since REEaCh began in 2019 we have focused on research that occurs in partnership with early childhood educators and services.  This year our research has included projects building resources for educator wellbeing and family engagement with Goodstart Early Learning and the Centre for Community Child Health; co-designing with our REEaCh research network approaches to supporting child wellbeing; and longer term projects such as the EDGE Study and the Early Learning Teaching Trial. I hope you find the information and links in this newsletter useful and interesting.

In November this year we launched the REEaCh Research Centre, as part of our annual Jenny Leaper Lecture. Bringing our work together as a University of Melbourne research centre is an important milestone and acknowledges the dedicated work of all of the team.

I wish everyone a relaxing summer break and we look forward to continuing to work with you in 2023.

Professor Tricia Eadie
