What is the EYLf – Early Years Learning Framework?


The Early Years Learning Framework describes the principles, practice and outcomes essential to support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school. The Framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning as play is the best vehicle for young children’s learning providing the most appropriate stimulus for brain development. The Framework also recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) has five outcomes. It is all well and good to have the outcomes, but what do they mean?? How do we use them in our teaching? How do the activities that we already have apply to the EYLF? I am going to break them down for you here. Click on the outcome you would like to go more in depth with.
