KidsMatter Early Childhood, the National Quality Standard (NQS) and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) have much in common. They all have relationships at their core and aim to develop children's social and emotional wellbeing and competence.  
In the KidsMatter eBook collection there is a series of eBooks unpacking the links between the KidsMatter Framework to both the NQS and the EYLF.
Concepts and processes included in KidsMatter Early Childhood closely align with those in the National Quality Standard and will support and assist educators to undertake a self-assessment process and develop their Quality Improvement Plan.
