Excerpt from report:

This curriculum framework for a children's service is a foundation out of which come the daily experiences of children, their families and the professionals who work with them. It is not mainly about what professionals in children's services do or how they go about their practice; rather, most importantly, this curriculum framework is about why: a rationale for practice.

The document is meant to be neither prescriptive nor restrictive…The intent is to validate the complexity of practice in children's services and support reflection and improvement.
