The introduction of this document gives educators and parents as educators the opportunity to open our minds to new possibilities when planning for children’s learning. The framework is broad and offers us the flexibility and licence to question old or entrenched systems and views.

Through an inquiry approach, we use of this framework to develop a deep rich curriculum for children. Information about our learning journey is documented on the Parent Notice Board in the main room. We are also documenting children’s learning in the form of a Statement of Learning which will be shared with children and parents, school and Kindergarten educators.
