Engaging Childcare

Every child has the ability to learn and develop. Having high expectations is especially important in achieving better outcomes for the most vulnerable children. Some children require additional supports and different learning experiences and opportunities to help them to learn and develop.

Early childhood professionals:

  • Commit to high expectations for all children’s learning and development
  • Ensure that every child experiences success in their learning and development
  • Recognise that every child can learn, but some children require quite different opportunities and supports to do this
  • Work with families to support children’s learning and development at home and in the community.
  • Using the Framework
    Using the Victorian Framework provides a common language to describe children’s learning and common principles to guide practice. It complements the discipline-specific resources that support early childhood professionals working with children and families. It assists all professionals to work together and with families to support children’s learning and
    development.
    The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework will be supported by a number of Implementation Guides. These Implementation Guides will be developed in partnership with the early childhood profession. They will provide detailed practice examples, case studies and guidance about how the Practice Principles for Learning and Development can be used to support children’s learning and development; and more detailed descriptions of children’s learning and development in the five Early Years
    Learning and Development Outcomes. They will be developed for a range of audiences, including families, Shinetime early childhood educators are working in a range of settings, and developments.
