What are planning templates in my region?

A planning template is a plan that is pre-populated with regularly used content, from which you can start a new plan. Planning templates are found in your planning templates library and are designed to save you time - so don't have to start from a blank slate every time you want to create a plan.

The My region tab is home to templates specific to early childhood requirements in your area. You can also access all other templates (i.e. not specific to your region) by clicking the All regions tab.
