I am very happy to help as the junior primary years of school have dramatically changed. The following relates to a current application of PLD in Kindergarten (WA QLD, SA & Tas) or Preschool (ACT, NT, NSW & Vic). .

If you download the following implementation booklet and then refer to pages 5, 6 and 7. These pages specifically relate to this age group. https://pld-literacy.org/product/pld-whole-school-literacy-strategy/

The current screening that is outlined on page 5 in the above implementation guide can be downloaded here: https://pld-literacy.org/product/early-years-pre-literacy-screening/

We also recommend placing the results from screening onto PLD tracking sheets, as part of the whole school literacy strategy. Information related to this can be found when you select the following link. Please note that the Kindergarten/Preschool section is towards the bottom of this FAQ. https://support.pld-literacy.org/en-au/article/i-want-to-start-the-year-well-can-you-assist-with-the-early-years-or-foundation-testing-being-recorded-on-the-pld-excel-tracking-sheets-11niwrn/

To request the tracking sheets: https://pld-literacy.org/monitoring

You may also want to consider some professional development. Training will alwasy enhance your implementation of a PLD strategy.
There are full day seminars scheduled on a regular basis: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/literacy-and-learning-in-kindergarten-registration-27920478904
Short online courses are also an option: https://pld-literacy.org/product/pre-literacy-in-the-early-years/

I hope this information is useful. Please don’t hesitate to contact the PLD office if you have further questions. mail@pld-literacy.org
