Information for families taking part in the AEL research project

If your child is attending an early learning centre taking part in the AEL research trial, we will be in touch with you in early 2019. We will provide you with detailed information on the AEL curriculum and how it will be evaluated. If you would like to take part in our research you will be asked to complete a consent form. Participation in the AEL research project is entirely voluntary.

The AEL curriculum has a focus on developing children's physical literacy and school readiness. The curriculum is guided by the Australian Government early years learning framework recognising the powerful and important learning environment of early learning centres. The curriculum is designed to help children develop social, emotional and physical capabilities that help them live a physically active life.
