This paper reports on how one of the major outcomes from a long term mathematics education professional development project involving educators from preschools and the early years of school in South Australia is being used by these educators to notice young children's mathematics. The educators use Reflective Continua to guide their reflection and planning for this learning. The paper explores the use of learning stories as a link between the Reflective Continua, the educators' noticing of children's mathematics and both the strands and competencies of the new Australian Curriculum - Mathematics and the outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia.
