How Will I Learn?

At Making Education, we want to make a difference by making it different.

We have redesigned what eLearning means, to bring you a sequenced and well thought out learning experience.

As you navigate this course, you will find that you have a facilitator guiding you on your journey. This will be used to ensure you stay on the right path and always know where you’re at.

Milestones and modules will also be used to break up the information into bite sized pieces, so that it all makes sense.

Quizzes and questions will provide you with learner feedback, helping you to get a sense for where you’ve been, and where you’re going on the journey.

Further learning and extension activities are also scattered throughout the course to provide you with rich reflection and opportunities to extend your knowledge further.

At the end of each section, you will be guided back to how this might be transferred to an early learning work environment to support you in implementing high quality education and care for all children.

For the best learning experience, we recommend full engagement with the learning materials and following the reflective prompts, questions and further learning tasks which will assist you to turn theory and knowledge into hands on practices and strategies.

Our eLearning modules are indented to provide learners with hands on and real world strategies, ideas and concepts which are ready to be implemented in your current workplace, whether that be a daycare, childcare, early learning or family day care environment.

At Making Education, we also advocate and recommend that once you have finished, you don’t rush on to the next task but instead sit for at least 10 – 15 minutes upon completion to reflect on your learning and let it sink in. This thinking time will support you to more effectively turn what you’ve just learnt into actionable steps to update and add to your current practices.

The active supervision course has been built upon the following four core learning outcomes which have been designed through years of discussions and interactions with service professionals who have been calling out for greater assistance in building active supervisors:

CLO1 Understand:

  • Understand what is required for early childhood supervision

CLO2 Apply:

  • Apply active supervision strategies that support high quality interactions & programming.

CLO3 Reflect & Evaluate:

Being one of our standard eLearning program, we will be using our standard module design to categorise and break down the information into clearly articulated clusters of eLearning content.

Why learn about active supervision?

Within the National Quality Framework, you will come across Quality Area 2.

You might stumble across Standard 2.2: Each child is protected.

When looking at the elements, you come across Element 2.2.1: At all times, reasonable precautions and adequate supervision ensure children are protected from harm and hazard.

You then turn to the Education and Care Services National Law which requires all children at an approved service are adequately supervised at all times and are adequately protected from any risks and hazards


  • Section 165: Offence to inadequately supervise children.
  • Section 167: Offence relating to the protection of children from harm and hazards
  • Section 174: Offence to fail to notify certain information Regulatory Authority.

So don’t just aim for adequate supervision. Transcend into active supervision to ensure you and your team are not only meeting regulations and national law but exceeding them.
