At Advanced Early Learning, we follow the Department of Education's Early Years Learning Framework. Our programs cater to all children’s interests and incorporate all types of learning. We offer a wide range of resources that help each child in all areas of development while at the same time making each experience fun and exciting.
The Early Years Learning Framework describes the principles, practice and outcomes which enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school.
The framework encourages the implementation of play-based learning while also maintaining a focus on communication and language skills and social and emotional development.
Early Years Learning Framework: an overview
- Each child’s learning will be based on their interests and strengths and will be guided by educators.
- Educators will work in collaboration with families to provide relevant learning experiences for each child, based on their interests and family experiences.
- Every child will be equally valued, and their achievements and learning will be celebrated.
- Educators will observe and record the strengths and learning of each child.
- Educators will work closely with children and families to produce ideas for the curriculum.
- Learning outcomes will be linked to the curriculum during and after each child’s learning has occurred.
- The curriculum will be based on each child’s interests, with educators extending children’s interests, spontaneous experiences and family contribution.
- Where appropriate, the service will liaise with external agencies and support persons to best educate and care for children with additional needs.
- Where appropriate, the curriculum will build and develop each child’s learning and observe each child’s strengths and development.
- The curriculum will be evaluated and reflected upon continuously by educators.
Learning outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework
- 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
Children’s learning is always ongoing, and each child will progress towards these outcomes in different but equally meaningful ways. Learning is not always predictable and linear, so our educators plan for and work together with each child, while always keeping the outcomes in mind
