Early childhood education and care services

To obtain full registration, a provisionally registered early childhood teacher must be delivering an education program to children in the year immediately before the preparatory year for one whole year (defined as 200 days) and meet the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Proficient Stage) (PDF, 185KB).

Only teaching experience gained after the date on which provisional registration in Queensland was granted is acceptable. The experience must have been completed no more than five years prior to initiating an application for full registration.

Acceptable teaching experience includes delivering an education program based on a syllabus or kindergarten guideline approved or accredited by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA), for example:

  • the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline
  • C&K Building Waterfalls (QCAA accredited) teaching and learning guideline for kindergarten.

The QCT’s Transition to full registration: An evidence guide for early childhood teachers (PDF, 12.8MB) is for use by provisionally registered early childhood teachers to assist their evidence collection and annotation.

Provisionally registered teachers teaching these programs must submit Form K for approval.

For more information on the role of the mentor/reviewer, and a link to Form K see Teaching Experience Setting 1 (PDF, 51KB).
