Learning Framework

Belonging, Being and Becoming

At the heart of 123 4 Kids programs is “Belonging, Being and Becoming”, the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for Australia. This is the Australian Government’s national framework for early childhood education and a vital component of the National Quality Framework (NQF) for early childhood education and care which is designed to encourage continuous improvement of education and care services across Australia. The EYLF explains the principles, practices and outcomes necessary to every early learning program and is intended to ensure all children, from birth to five years of age, receive high-quality learning experiences.

The framework includes:

  • A national body to guide the implementation and management of the overall framework – the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA)
  • The National Quality Standard (NQS) for early childhood education and care and outside school hours care
  • Staff-to-child ratios
  • Qualification requirements for early childhood educators
  • A quality rating system for services.
The seven quality areas covered by the National Quality Standard (NQS) are:
  • Educational program and practice
  • Children’s health and safety
  • Physical environment
  • Staffing arrangements, including staff to child ratios and qualifications
  • Relationships with children
  • Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
  • Governance and Leadership
