Planning for Learning

Activities designed to get children thinking and playing creatively while supporting their progress towards the EYLF learning outcomes.

These ideas help educators to easily shape weekly plans and involve parents in the chosen topic. Educators are encouraged to dip into the activities, choosing those that best meet the characteristics of each child and the families they are working with, and balancing these activities with those initiated by children themselves.

Ages: 2-6 years
