Dr Red Ruby Scarlet and Anthony Semann have carefully curated ways of engaging with the EYLF that are inclusive and accessible. In the chapters of this book they dive into each part of the EYLF to guide and support the diversity of educators who are required to use the EYLF in their everyday practices. Their approach in this book is to ensure that educators feel enthusiastic about learning the new additions, as well as a sense of excitement to put them into practice. Red and Anthony are both currently involved in service delivery in various ways and so speak from a practice-based perspective.

Anthony Semann is an agent of change. After qualifying as an early childhood teacher, Anthony spent his early career working in long day care. Eager to learn as much as he could about practice and people, he built his pedagogical knowledge and developed his skills in fostering relationships. Early on, Anthony also discovered the importance of equity and social justice as a driving force in social change. His desire for learning remains apparent, so too does his commitment to naming inequity, shifting practice towards justice, and living a life that embodies all that he preaches.
