The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the Australian Curriculum are both frameworks introduced to create a coherent standard of achievements or learning outcomes for students at different development levels within Australia. The EYLF is dedicated to the learning outcomes of children from birth to 5 years in Kindergarten, early educational care settings and the transition to school. The Australian Curriculum is a framework focusing on children’s learning during the Foundation year through to year 10. Its standard of achievements and content descriptions establish the requirements for students to successfully progress through school. Both frameworks reinforce the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child.

Introduction: “Creativity is now seen as a crucial element in education” according to (Duffy, 2006). Creativity is important for mental health from an early age and is a way of demonstrating quality education and care in a setting. Practitioners are encouraged to promote children to be creative and imaginative in their centres in order to foster a love of learning. “Creativity is fundamental to successful learning. Being creative enables the children in early years to make connections between one are of learning and another and to extend their understanding” (QCa 2000b:116).
Early childhood educators must differentiate instruction, build knowledge together, create multiple opportunities for learning, teach to all developmental domains, integrate content areas, and monitor children’s achievement (Brown, Feger, & Mowry, n. d.). Tools, techniques, and strategies must meet the readiness levels, interest, needs, and cultural identities of individual learners. When young children learn through developmentally appropriate practices they are enabled to connect previous experiences to new knowledge and make meaningful connections. DAP also helps learners meet challenging goals, build confidence and self-esteem, and encourages them to take on a positive approach to learning. The side-effects of non-DAP can result in behavior issues, failed classroom management, miseducation, failure of students reaching their academic potential, and grade
This demonstrates my understanding of effective learning though appropriate instructional strategies because is displays how I implemented a variety of materials and technological resources to support my instructional strategies and reinforce student learning. It also conveys my ability to assess student’s through both formal (activity sheet) and informal (thumbs up) assessment techniques.
