Early year learning framework

The early years learning framework is an early childhood curriculum framework, which will guide early childhood educators in developing quality, early childhood education programmes. The framework describes the principles, practice and outcomes to support and enhance young children's learning from birth to five years, as well as their transition to school. This will help ensure consistency in the delivery of learning programmes around Australia.
