Early Years Learning Framework



Practices relates to how we put our Principles into action by working together with children, their families and within our community. The Early Years Learning Framework promotes children’s learning by drawing upon a repertoire of pedagogical practices (using our skills and knowledge to enable us to help children to learn). These include the following:
Teaching and learning through recognition of the mind, body and spirit. Paying attention to a child’s physical, personal, social and emotional, cognitive and spiritual wellbeing aspects of learning. Foster and enhance children’s understanding of the natural environment and the connections between people, plants, animals and the land.
