Quality Area 1 Educational program and practice
This area focuses on pedagogical practices of educators and co-ordinators as well as the development of programs that promote children's learning across the five learning outcomes.
To develop a program you need to understand your beliefs of why you want to provide care and education and if this follows your philosophy. Early Childhood Australia provides a philosophy from the Dorothy Wade Centre for Early Learning. There are many ways to develop a philosophy and this is just one.
