What Is This Resource?
The teaching practice list provides a list of specific teaching practices organised under five broad areas of early childhood pedagogy: (1) relationships; (2) environment; (3) social–emotional teaching; (4) intentional teaching; and (5) competent and confident learners. Within each area there are additional sections (a total of 26 sections) to highlight key areas of practice. The practice list is a result of a collaborative research project with kindergarten teachers and early childhood stakeholders.
