The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) supports and provides guidance for educators working with children ages from birth to five years of age. The EYLF describes the principles, practice and outcomes essential for supporting and enhancing children’s learning and has a strong emphasis on play-based learning.
The EYLF Practice Based Resources have been sent to all early education and care services throughout Australia.
The EYLF Practice Based Resources have been designed to further engage educators to explore the key ideas of the EYLF and support the implementation of EYLF. This suite of resources provides a practice based in-depth overview of the Principles, Practices and Outcomes and provides useful everyday scenarios, activities and guidance to support further understanding of the EYLF. The EYLF Practice Based Resources closely align children’s early learning and developmental milestones with the Principles, Practices and Outcomes and provokes thinking and reflection of the EYLF.
The suite of resources include:
The EYLF has been translated into Arabic, Chinese, Dinka, Hindi, Korean, Spanish, Somali, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese and is now available.
Children’s Services Central provides a range of professional development opportunities, support and resources to support educators with understanding and implementing the EYLF.
