Early Years Learning Framework

The centre plans and implements The Early Years Learning Framework in partnership with families, children's first and most influential educators, to develop learning programs responsive to children's ideas, interests, strengths and abilities, and recognise that children learn through their play.

The Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming...

Belonging

Is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place.

Being

Is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just 'be' - time to play, try new things and have fun.

Becoming

Is about the learning and development that young children experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from an early age, which shapes the type of adult they will become.

The Early Years Learning Framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning. The framework also recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development. In addition, the framework has a focus on successful transition to formal schooling.

The Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children's learning from birth to five years. It communicates these expectations through the following five learning outcomes:

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