Early Years Learning Framework

Early Years Learning Framework

The EYLF is a guide which consists of Principles, Practices and 5 main “Learning Outcomes” along with each of their sub outcomes, based on identity, community, wellbeing, learning and communicating.

We tailor our programs to reflect the EYLF framework to cater for the diverse values, interests and needs of children and their families attending our service.  Each child has their own unique educational care to cater for diverse individual interests and needs.  Our focus is to provide equity in all that we do to extend and enrich children’s learning and provide opportunities for children to develop a foundation for education.

The Framework is a result of years of development between federal and state governments, early childhood professionals and academics. It is defined by three core values to describe early childhood development:

  • Belonging
  • Being
  • Becoming

From these three values, a selection of principles, practices and outcomes were defined to guide the pedagogy of early childhood professionals working with children aged 0-5 years and through their transition to school. These outcomes include:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected to and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators

We achieve the EYLF learning outcomes through meaningful play based learning where the experiences of exploring, imagination, communication and discovery support children’s understanding, skills and abilities.

Each child’s learning experiences are planned through our documented observations to extend each individual child’s learning through play.  Individual child portfolios are updated to record and reflect on learning experiences and individual development in line with the EYLF standards.
