Early Years Learning Framework

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is a government initiative that outlines a national curriculum for children in the preschool years in early childhood settings. City Kids Early Learning Centre has embraced this initiative, embedding it into our curriculum.

The EYLF is an ‘outcomes based’ curriculum, including outcomes based around ‘identity’, ‘community’, ‘wellbeing’, ‘communication’ and ‘learning’. We actively promote and plan activities based around these outcomes, in collaboration with children and families.
