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. It includes an overview of the principles and 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.
The Early Years Learning Framework: Learning and teaching through play focuses on The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for Australia and explains how educators examine their understandings of play and how play-based approaches require intentional planning and teaching in order to support and extend children’s learning. Throughout the book there are practice examples and questions for critical reflection and discussion with colleagues.
This book provides Educators with knowledge and clarification of five curriculum approaches; Emergent Curriculum, Reggio Emilia, Project Approach, Integrated Curriculum, and Inclusive Curriculum. We explore how to integrate these approaches with the EYLF and discuss programming techniques and assessments of learning. Each curriculum approach is defined and explained to assist Educators in choosing a curriculum approach that fits their personal philosophy and style.
