Age-appropriate pedagogies (AAP) offers a research-driven and custom-built language about effective early years pedagogies and a decision-making framework that supports teachers to select and employ a range and balance of approaches and characteristics, when teaching the Australian Curriculum, to:
- actively engage children in purposeful learning experiences
- enhance learning outcomes
- build positive dispositions towards learning, now and in the future.
AAP is evidence-based and flexible in nature. It supports teachers to plan and make decisions about teaching and learning experiences that are responsive to the child, teacher, context, curriculum and evidence of learning within and across diverse educational environments. It plays a key role in supporting successful
transitions and enhancing
Kindergarten to Year 2 continuity and alignment.
