This page explains the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the early years curriculum and includes a range of support materials.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the curriculum

The early years of education are a particularly important time for children to build strong foundations in learning and relationships with others. In the early years, children learn about the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. They engage with a variety of stories, languages, beliefs and cultural practices of Australia's first peoples.
