coaching and mentoring
At Phoenix Support, coaching is a process based on an ongoing relationship with a mentor for the purpose of professional learning and continuous improvement. Our mentors all have at least 10 years experience in the field of education and care. Research shows that coaching support for early childhood educators leads to improved practice and supports outcomes for children's learning.
Educators and leaders can work with a coach to:
improve their curriculum planning
develop their pedagogy and practice
understand and plan for children's behaviour
implement the National Quality Framework
design their learning environments
apply strength based leadership.
Evidence based application
Our coaching packages take into consideration research around effective coaching programs

In this intensive package your coach becomes your critical friend. You'll build a productive and supportive relationship and share goals for your service over a long term support period. 3 months? 6 months? 12 months? It's up to you. Together, you'll develop Quality Improvement Plan actions, and at the conclusion of the package, your coach will provide you with a thorough QIP report.
In addition to coaching and mentoring, your coach can facilitate whole team staff meetings with transformative professional conversations.
