At Camelot Preschool, our learning curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The EYLF was developed to ensure all children in early childhood education and care settings across Australia, experience quality teaching and learning through play- based, holistic learning. The EYLF is made up of learning outcomes, principles, and practices which educators use in their documentation of children’s learning and in their reflection and planning.
Fundamental to the EYLF is a view of children’s lives as characterised by belonging, being and becoming. From before birth children are connected to family, community, culture and place. Their earliest development and learning take place through these relationships. As children participate in everyday life, they develop interests and construct their own identities and understandings of the world.
