Overview

Birth to Big School is designed to support the Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care in a holistic and integrated way while addressing the relevant units of the Training Package. The text emphasises the importance of knowing the traditional domains of development and links them to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the National Quality Standards (NQS) by using down-to-earth practical examples. Questions enable students to check their understanding of the content and provide a reference point to the NQS.
