The National Quality Framework - The Musical

Latrobe City Council with Dr. Red Ruby Scarlet and Louise Dorrat

A professional learning experience with a difference…


The National Quality Framework – The Musical! is about the experience of early childhood educators in everyday practice. The two characters - Red (Educational Leader) and Lou (Coordinator) take the audience through the professional and emotional experience of daily life in an early childhood setting. 
The key events that occur in four acts during the musical are: 
- Notice of Assessment 
- Reflective Practice 
- Assessment and Rating 
- Social Justice and The Arts 
Through these four acts, Red and Lou express thoughts, feelings and practices that educators have reported on anecdotally, through first hand experience, and in research projects pertaining to educators’ experiences of the National Quality Framework and the regulatory landscape more broadly. 
Through witty dialogue, music and dance, these experiences are enacted in order to acknowledge the complexity of the profession as well as reassure educators that they can engage confidently in their everyday practices. 
The central themes draw from the Principles and Practices in the EYLF and the 7 Quality areas in the NQS.
