A FRAMEWORK FOR ALL CHILDREN IN VICTORIA
The Victoria Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) guides early childhood professionals to work together with families in support of their children, embracing and responding to the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Victorian community and diverse approaches to child rearing.
We plan for each child based on their interests and needs, and use the VEYLDF as a guide to ensure a developmentally appropriate and stimulating environment for learning.
EARLY YEARS LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT OUTCOMES:
OUTCOME 1: Children have a strong sense of identity.
OUTCOME 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
OUTCOME 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
OUTCOME 4: Children are confident and involved learners.
OUTCOME 5: Children are effective communicators.
