While we try to teach our children all about life,
our children teach us what life is all about.

The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline supports kindergarten teachers’ professional practice in a range of contexts across Queensland. The guideline is based on the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) and embraces the inclusive vision that ‘ all children engage in learning that promotes confident and creative individuals and successful lifelong learners. All children are active and informed members of their communities with knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives’.

The EYLF describes a vision of children’s learning, characterised by:

  • Belonging – recognising that knowing where and with whom you belong is integral to human existence, providing a basis for children’s interdependence and relationships with others
  • Being – recognising and valuing the “here and now” in children’s lives, and viewing childhood as more than simply preparation for adulthood or for the future
  • Becoming – recognising the rapid and significant learning and development that occurs in the early years, and the capability and potential of all children.

The Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline aims to specifically enrich children’s learning in the Kindergarten Year. Throughout the Kindergarten year, children’s right to experience the joy of childhood is fundamental and learning is promoted through play, and emergent and planned learning experiences and interactions.

The guideline describes a set of five learning and development areas that relate to the five broad learning outcomes identified in the EYLF:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators
