Rich in enticing images and learning experiences from early years settings in Reggio Emilia (Italy) and Australia, Documentation and the Early Years Learning Framework offers students, researchers and professionals in early childhood education and care deep provocations for considering the many possibilities and intents of Documentation. Jan Millikan and Stefania Giamminuti bring to this publication their unique experiences, constructed over decades of research and engagement with the educational project of Reggio Emilia (Italy).
This book embodies the hopes for the Early Years Learning Framework that the national consortium and the Council of Australian Government's Working Party brought to its development. Jan and Stefania provide a wonderful example of what it means to engage deeply with the EYLF and to bring it into conversation with other ideas and traditions in ways that invigorate and stretch our collective imaginations, and pedagogical ambitions and practices. It is work such as this that breathes life into the EYLF and makes it a learning framework that we can all 閳ユΖwn' and feel proud of as we continue to explore it possibilities.
