Judy Radich
Judy Radich is an early childhood educator with a long history of working with young children in preschool and long day care.


This module explores ways for educators to build and strengthen partnerships with the communities in which they work and live. The module includes written information, a three-part video interview with the nominated supervisor at an early childhood service, and self-reflection activities. The module specifically addresses community diversity and cultures, including Indigenous cultures.

The module will provide you with an understanding of:

  • who benefits from partnerships between the early childhood service and the wider community
  • the role of interpersonal relationships in community-service partnerships
  • how to build relationships successfully


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes


Completing Partnerships with Communities will contribute 1 hour of PD addressing standards 6.2.2, 7.3.2, and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Courses completed after 17/8/2017 will be validated.
