Centres using Playground Web now have the option to create and add in their own Learning Frameworks and Outcomes as needed, for their educators to tag children's documentation against and share with parents.

Alongside the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Framework, centres can now tag outcomes relating to their centre's philosophy, policies and practices as needed. All documentation tagged against these added outcomes can then be reported on using the Learning Analysis tool in Playground Web.

Check out the steps below to learn how to create your own Learning Framework in Playground Web: 

 

Creating a Learning Framework

You will need to log into Playground Web using your centre's provider level credentials. The credentials you use will mean the framework is available at a Provider level for your centre/s.
