Personal profile


Sandie Wong (B Ed [ECE], PhD, RN) joined Macquarie University in July 2018 as an Associate Professor. Sandie has worked as an academic, manager, researcher, evaluator, educator, consultant and nurse, within a range of early childhood, academic and health organisations. Sandie’s research is driven by a concern with the role early childhood education has in ameliorating disadvantage and reducing marginalisation both contemporaneously and historically. She is committed to working in collaborative, strengths-based ways, with academics from a range of disciplines, early childhood organisations and practitioners, and governments, to lead and support high quality research, evaluation and practitioner enquiry, that contributes to best practice in early childhood. She has an on-going interest in historicising early childhood through history of the present and oral history methodologies. Her current work investigates: early childhood practices (including inter-professional practice; workforce issues; educator well-being) and the history of early childhood internationally. Sandie is CI on the ARC Linkage Grant - Exemplary early childhood educators at work: A multi-level investigation (LP160100532). She currently holds a three-year Senior Research Fellowship with Goodstart Early Learning.
