The early years learning framework is a National Learning Framework for children from birth to five years. The early years are a vital time for children’s development and learning, the framework has been developed to ensure your child receives a quality education.
Educators use the framework in partnership with families to develop learning programs responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities and recognizes 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 relationship 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 just “to be” to play, to try new experiences and to 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.
Through the Frameworks five learning goals educators will assist your child to develop:
- A strong sense of their identity
- Connections with their world
- A strong sense of wellbeing
- Confidence and involvement in their learning
- Effective communication skills
