Early Years in Education
Belonging, Being and Becoming – The Early Years Learning Framework describes the principles, practices and outcomes that support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school.
There is clear evidence that early childhood development provides the foundations for life and
learning, both inside and outside the home environment. This involves developing the cognitive,
emotional and social skills needed to succeed, as well as achieving sound health and wellbeing.
Investing in early childhood, including through quality early childhood education and care, benefits
individuals, our community and the economy.
