Child Initiated Learning
Positive Relationships in the Early Years

Author(s): Jenny Lindon, Liz Rouse (click on the author's name for more titles)

Best practice in early years education is to understand young children’s development and respect their current interests. The National Quality Framework, through the NQS and the EYLF, has created a strong focus on the importance of child-initiated learning through framing educator practice to encompass children’s active choice about what to do within any set day.

This book offers practical advice on:

  • what is meant by child-initiated learning and self-chosen experiences
  • how observant educators are able to support children’s learning
  • the importance of first-hand experiences for children and an interesting learning environment
  • flexible planning and documentation, in response to children’s interests and skills
  • dealing with uncertainty and confusion about adult-led activities and group time Each chapter features case studies of child-initiated learning working in practice in a variety of group early years settings.


This book is essential for all those working in the early years looking to offer stimulating and challenging learning experiences with every child in their setting.

Documentation and the Early Years Learning Framework
Researching in Reggio Emilia and Australia

Author(s): Jan Millikan, Stefania Giamminuti (click on the author's name for more titles)

This new title in our EYLF series links the EYLF and documentation. Drawing on research from both Reggio Emilia and Australia, the authors are well placed to offer these insights.

From the Foreword by Jennifer Sumsion:

Jan and Stefania have taken up the challenge of ensuring that belonging, being and becoming doesn’t descend into cliché. As they explain, they have written ‘with the aim of sparking enriched responses to belonging, being and becoming’. And indeed, they have succeeded beautifully in showing how the principles of the Reggio Emilia educational project in Northern Italy can map so effectively onto the principles of the EYLF.

But importantly, they also show how bringing Reggio Emilia principles into conversation with the EYLF can provoke new ways of thinking about the possibilities of the EYLF. By focusing particularly on documentation, they make a timely and valuable contribution. They challenge some of the many myths about documentation that have emerged and taken hold over recent years. They complicate every day understandings and push readers to think more deeply about the possibilities that this distinctive aspect of early childhood practice affords. But equally importantly, they discuss ethical issues and related concerns that have been raised about documentation.
