    Abstract

    This article provides an overview of the Education Meets Play study that will investigate early childhood educators' use of play-based learning, now mandatory under the National Quality Standard. By building on what can be gleaned about educators' approaches to play-based learning prior to the implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework, the study will contribute to the evidence base concerning the implementation and effects of Australia's early childhood education and care policy reform initiatives.
