QKLG 2018 review
The QKLG 2018 is being revised. While the revision is in progress, teachers and services will continue to implement the QKLG 2018.
The QKLG supports kindergarten teachers’ professional practice in a range of contexts across Queensland.
It adopts the vision of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) that ‘all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life’.
The QKLG provides specificity for children’s learning across the year before starting school, recognising that children bring with them diverse identities and backgrounds. It acknowledges that parents/carers are children’s first teachers and values the vital role families play in children’s lives and their ongoing learning. The term ‘families’ is used throughout the guideline to recognise the range of people who take on parenting roles.
The QKLG provides a framework aligned to the EYLF and is designed to support teachers to plan and implement quality teaching and learning. Resources that support quality teaching and learning in a kindergarten program can be accessed on the QCAA website.
