The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is Australia’s national curriculum framework for early childhood education. It emphasis learning through play and recognises that play is an ideal learning vehicle. The EYLF focuses on how children learn and our educators work with each child to achieve positive learning outcomes. Building strong relationships with families and children is an important step. Our early childhood educators use this framework to create and plan curricula and programs that are responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities. It focuses on your child developing a sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming through five learning outcomes.
The three interwoven concepts in the framework of children’s lives are Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Belonging is about feeling that you are part of a group, a family, a feeling that you are connected and have a meaningful relationship with others.
Being is about the present, it is about the living and how we experience the “now”. For Children, it is about knowing that other children and adults, that they come in contact with, care about them.
Becoming is about change, the experience of being in a different place or space. It reflects children’s growing, understanding of different situations
