Bring some FUN to the EYLF

The EYLF is an abbreviation for Early Years Learning Framework' in Australia. EYLF is a framework – it’s not a program, it’s not a curriculum to follow, it’s not a syllabus. It is a foundation of Principles, Practices and Learning Outcomes to assist educators in designing a curriculum, using Learning Outcomes as goals for children to achieve and using the Principles and Practices to reflect of early education, care and learning (credit: Aussie Childcare Network)

We'll be honest. The Early Years Learning Framework confused us a little when we bought CleverStuff about a year ago. We didn't realise JUST how much educators had to show, observe, document and communicate in their daily tasks (again, educators are AMAZING!). So we've tried to help a little by putting together some ideas to show how our toys that can link and help you meet the EYLF.
