- The Early Years Learning Framework is an early childhood curriculum framework, which will guide early childhood educators in developing quality, early childhood education programmes. It has been developed collaboratively by the Australian and state and territory governments with substantial input from the child care and early learning sector and early childhood academics.
- The Early Years Learning Framework has a strong emphasis on play-based learning. The framework also recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.
