A handbook for educators and families

Bridie Raban, Kay Margetts

The Early Years Learning Framework in Practice – Third Edition serves as a practical guide for early childhood professionals in interpreting and implementing the EYLF V2.0. It comprises five chapters offering advice and strategies for supporting each of the Learning Outcomes. The book provides an overview of the Principles and Practices and pedagogy underlying the EYLF V2.0, along with guidance on implementing the Learning Outcomes with different age groups. Additionally, it includes updated information about the National Quality Agenda for Early Childhood Education and Care.

This resource is invaluable for early childhood educators in articulating their practice, undertaking NQS self-evaluation, and developing their Quality Improvement Plan, particularly in the areas of Education Program and Practice, Physical Environment, and Relationships with Children, in preparation for the assessment and rating process at their service.
