What is the role of the Educational Leader?

The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) defines the primary role of the Educational leader as:

  • collaborating with educators and providing curriculum direction and guidance
  • supporting educators to effectively implement the cycle of planning to enhance programs and practices
  • leading the development and implementation of an effective educational program in the service
  • ensuring that children’s learning and development are guided by the learning outcomes of the approved learning frameworks.

ACECQA has a range of resources for Educational Leadership that can be found here.
