Using a planning cycle is a requirement of the National Quality Standard. It provides educators with some structure on how to collect data, interpret this data, plan for learning and then document the results. For many centres, there seems to be a disconnect between the various elements of the planning cycle. In addition, many centres can be collecting data and documenting in ways that do not feed back into future plans. This presentation will provide practical ways in integrating a cycle of planning into your setting. We will explore the various components related to planning for learning and identify what documents are needed and which are not.

Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Explain how the planning cycle operates in your setting
  • Identify the various components of the planning cycle
  • Articulate the different forms of documentation that connect to each part of the planning cycle
  • Decide what kind of planning cycle works best in your centre
