    Implementation Considerations

    ​Target population: educators.

    Program/practice descriptions and details: the workshop is delivered face-to-face. It incorporates reflective practice and a range of resources, checklists, tip sheets, activities and play-based ideas that educators can easily incorporate into daily routines.

    Current best implementation knowledge: when teams of educators attend a workshop together, and use the range of resources, tools and supports, they are able to work more effectively on intentional daily literacy practices as a team around the child.
