Learning Domains of the ECIPs
The learning domains include: 1. Social and Emotional Development; 2. Approaches to Learning; 3. Language, Literacy and Communications; 4. The Arts; 5. Social Systems (Cognitive); 6. Physical and Movement Development; 7. Mathematics (Cognitive); and, 8. Scientific Thinking (Cognitive). The domain numbers identify the location of an indicator within the domain, component and subcomponent.
The organization of the domains is designed to be easy-to-understand and aid in planning by teachers for individual children, small groups, and classroom-wide. The ECIPs are displayed as an age continuum (birth to age 5) within each domain and include the following elements:
- Domains are major areas of development and learning.
- Components are specific areas of learning within each domain.
- Subcomponents are consistent strands within a component across the full age-range continuum.
- Indicators are expectations for observable outcomes for the child at specific ages. For quick reference, indicators are now numbered within the domain and subcomponent.
