  1. Literacy in Early Childhood Services: Good Practice

    The intent of the evaluation was to gain an insight and understanding of literacy teaching and learning in early childhood education. This report complements the ERO national evaluation report, Literacy in Early Childhood: Teaching and Learning, February 2011. It presents examples of good practice from 13 early childhood services, identified during their ERO reviews, which had high quality literacy teaching and learning. ERO revisited these services in Term 4, 2010. These services were at different stages in their understanding and associated literacy teaching and learning practices.

  5. Aligning practices

    ERO’s report Priorities for Children’s Learning in Early Childhood Services (May 2013) shows that in services where the curriculum was highly reflective of their priorities for children’s learning, the processes associated with curriculum design, teaching and assessment practices, and self review were well aligned. Although many services in the 2012 evaluation were implementing the various processes associated with curriculum, assessment and self review, the alignment between these was of...
