Assessing children's learning

Early childhood professionals assess children’s learning in ways that:

  • inform their practice 
  • include children’s views of their own learning
  • are authentic and responsive to how children demonstrate their learning and development
  • draw on families’ perspectives, knowledge, experiences and expectations
  • consider children in the context of their families and provide support to families when necessary
  • value the culturally specific knowledge embedded within communities about children’s learning and development
  • are transparent and objective, and provide families with information about their children’s learning and development, and about what they can do to further support their children
  • gather and analyse information from a wide range of sources to help them assess and plan effectively
  • provide the best possible advice and guidance to children and their families.​
