Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines - Learning and Development Areas

The QKLG provides specifically for children’s learning across the year before starting school. It recognises 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 guidelines to recognise the range of people who take on parenting roles.
