By default, learning sets are private, ie. only visible to those who create them.
Public sets on the other hand are sets that are available to every teacher who uses Storypark, worldwide. These are created by Storypark in consultation with regional education specialists and with permission from the original authors. They can also be created by Storypark users who have created and shared their set publicly.
When you share your learning sets this way you’re helping to build a global knowledge base where early learning teachers around the world can learn from one another.
Examples of public sets might include a country’s or a state’s curriculum, eg:
- Te Whāriki 2017
- Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) - Australia
- Tātaiako – cultural competencies for teachers of Māori learners
- Aboriginal 8 ways of learning

Public sets can be great learning tools for teachers in early stages of their career and professional development. Sets don't have to be created from scratch, and browsing other teachers’ public sets can help reveal practises that can be applied to your own teaching.
The Storypark-created sets will appear at the top of the public sets list, and user-created sets will be listed alphabetically below these.
