Planning is central to a broad and balanced curriculum that benefits each child. The experiences planned for children need to relate to and build on their abilities, interests, knowledge and other personal and cultural characteristics. They need to e meaningful and relevant, and should support children's progress towards learning outcomes. When the context of experiences and activities is meaningful, children are more likely to learn and develop.
This series of books offers ideas or a range of focused activities which encompass the EYLF learning outcomes and are designed to get children thinking and playing creatively. Early childhood 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.
Titles in the series: Animals, Colour, Growth, ICT, Journeys, Opposites, Shapes, Space, The Senses, Water.
