Kelly Goodsir, Anne Houghton

Documenting Children’s Learning is a resource designed to revolutionise the way educators approach documentation and assessment in early childhood education. This guide dismantles common myths and demonstrates how meaningful documentation can reveal children’s capabilities making them visible and accessible.

Influences and Frameworks:

  • Te Whāriki and EYLF: The authors draw inspiration from the Te Whāriki and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), integrating their principles into practical strategies for documentation and assessment.

Key Features:

  • Diverse Examples: Discover a wide range of examples illustrating planning, observation, documentation, and assessment. See how pedagogical documentation can be effectively implemented in practice and see how to reflect on your practice within the planning cycle.
