PublishingPageContent

Effective pedagogy and practice is one of the 5 action areas outlined in the Supporting successful transition: School decision-making tool.

The effective pedagogy and practice action area focuses on early childhood pedagogy and the continuity of learning in the early years. For each focus area, there is a description of a range of behaviours across 3 decision-making levels (school-centred, consultative and collaborative).

These behaviour descriptors assist schools in reflecting on the level of collaborative decision-making in the effective pedagogy and practice action area​.

Age-appropriate pedagogies

Using a range and balance of age-appropriate pedagogies in the early years of schooling is important in supporting children to be actively engaged, creative and successful learners.

Continuity of learning in the early years is strengthened through strong relationships and communication between a range of partners, including school staff, early childhood services and families.

Research

The age-appropriate pedagogies for the early years of schooling: Foundation paper provides a review of the literature and research of age-appropriate pedagogies in the early years of schooling. It examines the features of age-appropriate teaching modes that engage young children and achieve effective learning outcomes.
