Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework: Birth to 8 years (VEYLDF)

The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority, in partnership with the Department of Education and Training, is responsible for development of a range of resources to support the ongoing implementation of the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework For all Children, from Birth to Eight Years ( VEYLDF).

The VEYLDF sets out five Learning and Development Outcomes and eight Practice Principles to guide early childhood professionals in their work with families and their young children from birth to eight years.
