Focus groups are filling up fast and the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) wants to hear from you. Register your interest now to participate in an online focus group running in Term 1, 2024, to have your say and inform the revision of the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF).

The VCAA, in partnership with the department and stakeholders, is leading the revision work and invites early childhood professionals to contribute their ideas.

The VEYLDF Revision will maintain Victoria’s distinctive focus on play-based learning up to the age of 8 years old, and the continuity of learning between early childhood services and schools.

The revision aims to enhance the existing content of the VEYLDF and make sure that it continues to reflect current research and best practice.

It will support all Victorian early childhood professionals in their work with children and families, especially in light of the significant reforms in the sector.

Calling all teachers and educators

If you would like to participate in one of the VCAA’s online focus groups running in Term 1, 2024, please register your interest here before Friday 15 December 2023. This is an opportunity that is available to you, and it is completely voluntary.
