About Active Early Learning

In accordance with the Australian Government early years learning framework recognising the powerful and important learning environment of early learning centres, the University of Canberra with support from Edge Early Learning and Harmony Early Learning Journey is developing a best practice physical literacy curriculum for 3 to 5 year olds.

The focus of the Active Early Learning (AEL) curriculum is to develop children's physical literacy to give them the foundation to take part in, and enjoy physical activity for life.

The AEL curriculum will be evaluated in 2019 in twenty five early learning centres. We will investigate: 1) ways to develop physical literacy capabilities in young children in early learning centres, and; 2) ways to support child care staff and parents to develop physical literacy in their children.
