The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework identifies early years learning and development outcomes, and practice principles. It highlights the importance of supporting children’s and families’ transitions as they move within and across services throughout the early childhood period (from birth to age eight).
The framework emphasises collaboration between early childhood professionals, and families, as a key to improving learning, development and transition outcomes for children.
The framework identifies five Early Years Learning and Development outcomes for all children:
- children have a strong sense of identity
- children are connected with and contribute to their world
- children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- children are confident and involved learners
- children are effective communicators.
