Our Early Years Learning Framework
What is the Early Years Learning Framework?
The EYLF is a National Framework for the Early Years sector. It aims to provide a nationally consistent guide for Early Childhood Educators to extend and enrich children's learning from birth to 5 years of age and includes transition to school.
Here at Johnny Crows, we take pride in delivering the Early Years Framework to each individual child who attends our service.
Educators use a range of intentional practices and interactions to encourage children's problem solving and thinking skills.
Children have access to a range of resources that they can utilise in a variety of ways to enrich and extend their play. Children actively construct their own understandings and contribute to other's learning. They recognise their agency, capacity to initiate and lead learning, and their rights to participate in decisions that affect them, including their learning.
Families are informed of their child's educational progress through individual child profiles of which contain learning stories, daily reflection charts and a weekly curriculum.
Parents are encouraged to contribute to the program and are encouraged to discuss their children's development.
Assessment of each child's learning and development is part of an ongoing cycle of planning, documenting and evaluation. It is an interactive process that drives development of the program.
Critical reflection on children's learning and development, both as individuals and in groups, is consistently used to implement, review and revise the program.
