How different children learn.
EYLF in OSHC
"One size (style) does not fit all. Effective educators try to understand how individual children take in and process information. They realize that not all children learn the same way.
Learning styles describe the ways in which individual children acquire information, evaluate it, and then examine their findings. Effective educators try to present materials in ways that will interest children and help them to absorb the information. Understanding a child's learning style helps accomplish this."
