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

Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework

Review and update of the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF)

Over the last five years, early childhood professionals have been supported in implementation of the VEYLDF through a range of information sessions, online modules, professional learning programs, resources, and evaluation findings.

Practitioners, researchers and policy makers have been working together to enact the Practice Principles and apply the evidence within the five Learning and Development Outcomes to deepen practice with children and families.

The consultation process will seek advice from early childhood professionals, policy makers and researchers on the following key areas:

  • The eight Practice Principles for Learning and Development to reflect new knowledge in policy, research and practice
  • The five Learning and Development Outcomes are agreed national outcomes for all children and will remain the same.
    The consultation provides an opportunity to review the VEYLDF introductory statements for each of the five outcomes and to strengthen the links between the Outcomes and the Foundation to Year 10 curriculum in the early years of school.
  • VEYLDF design features, including revision of existing images and logos and identification of new visuals to best reflect new policy directions, contemporary research evidence and multidisciplinary collaboration.

There are multiple ways in which early childhood professionals can support the consultation process and provide feedback:

Note: the survey will be provided in hard copy at all face-to-face and video conference consultations.
