Early Years Learning Framework
The Framework forms the foundation for ensuring that children in all early childhood education and care settings experience quality teaching and learning. It has a speciﬁc emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development. The Framework has been designed for use by early childhood educators working in partnership with families, children’s ﬁrst and most inﬂuential educators.
Experiencing belonging – knowing where and with whom you belong – is integral to human existence. Children belong ﬁrst to a family, a cultural group, a neighbourhood and a wider community. Belonging acknowledges children’s interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in deﬁning identities. In early childhood, and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging. Belonging is central to being and becoming in that it shapes who children are and who they can become.
Childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world. Being recognises the signiﬁcance of the here and now in children’s lives. It is about the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others, engaging with life’s joys and complexities, and meeting challenges in everyday life. The early childhood years are not solely preparation for the future but also about the present.
Children’s identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills and relationships change during childhood. They are shaped by many different events and circumstances. Becoming reﬂects this process of rapid and signiﬁcant change that occurs in the early years as young children learn and grow. It emphasises learning to participate fully and actively in society.
