Early Childhood Documentation Program

Creating the pedagogical documentation around an early childhood program is an important part of the work of an early childhood teacher. Creating meaningful, compliant, time efficient, community-relevant documentation is a huge challenge for all teachers. The TLN has developed a 3 part program to support teachers create pedagogical documentation that works for them.

This program contends that there is no one way of documenting that is "right". This isn't a program that teaches a formula for documentation. Rather, it provides information and frameworks for deciding what meets regulatory requirements, is right for your community and can be done in a reasonable amount of time.

Part one looks at what's required of documentation. Part two is about finding a documentation method that works for you. Part three explores how to explain your documentation to families, employers and regulatory authorities. 

The full program is still being developed and piloted. Extra sessions will appear on this page over the course of 2017.

    The program will look at:

    This is part two of a three-part program looking at the  pedagogical documentation of an early childhood program. Part one looks at what is required of your documentation, part two looks at options for fulfilling those requirements and part three is about how to talk about your documentation to others. You're welcome to undertake just this part or all three parts.

    Part two of the program explores different models that you can use when documenting an early childhood program. On this day we'll look at:

    • What models do other teachers use?
    • What models would work for me, the children I teach and my community?
    • A tool for analysing whether a chosen method will fit within the time available
    • Being realistic about what can be done
