Are you implementing the Early Years Learning Framework? Do you need to understand the new quality agenda for early childhood services? Do you support, mentor or work with teachers and carers in preschools, child care or early learning centres? This conference will be of interest to professionals who wish to strengthen their understanding of the EYLF; and develop strategies for optimising or supporting implementation, and mapping and enhancing practice. It will focus on principles, practices and outcomes around key aspects of the EYLF. Sessions will be presented by experts who will draw on the EYLF's key themes as they emphasise curriculum, documentation, assessment and the role of play in key areas of learning.
