Associate Professor Marianne Fenech is Director of early childhood programs at the University of Sydney. Marianne is passionate about quality early learning experiences for children and a supported, quality early childhood workforce. Her research focuses on the governing of early childhood services, teacher education, and teachers, and the impact this governance has on the provision of quality and inclusive early childhood education. Marianne is currently conducting a study with Professor Helen Watt on professional registration for early childhood teachers who work with children in the birth- to five-years old group. She is interested in early childhood teachers’ views about professional registration and, if you are currently registered, would like to know about your experience in relation to your professional development and capacity to provide quality early childhood education. Following the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership’s (AITSL) review of teacher registration in 2018, she wants to know what you think so perspectives of early childhood teachers can inform developing national policy in this area.
