This is a key resource for interpreting and implementing the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and is of value to anyone involved with early childhood education.
This revised edition incorporates updated information about the National Quality Agenda for Early Childhood Education and Care, including information on the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, and the National Quality Standard (NQS). Minor changes have been made to other sections of the book to more closely reflect the language of the EYLF and the NQS.
Central to the book are the five chapters that provide practical advice and strategies for supporting each of the learning outcomes. It includes an overview of the principles, practice and pedagogy underlying the EYLF and advice on implementing the outcomes with different age groups. It also includes guidelines on learning environments, observation, evaluation, planning, play and transitions. A comprehensive list of useful resources is provided as well.
