The planning cycle includes the process of making and documenting our curriculum decisions.  Not only is this a requirement of the regulations but it acts as an important mechanism to make our curriculum decision or plan visible to families and our colleagues. This webinar provides support and advice on how services can design plans that articulate our curriculum and communicate our practice and pedagogy decisions.

Description

This webinar offers educators the opportunity to consider the key features of a curriculum plan that supports children to learn and grown.  The webinar discusses how an effective plan assists educators to keep track of their decisions and ensure that all parts of the curriculum scaffold children learning.  Using examples and design suggestions the session encourages educators to re-develop and enhance their plans that create ECEC programs that engage children (and families), without becoming a ‘burden’ or simply a ‘routine’ for educators.
