The Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) has released updates to the 2 national approved learning frameworks, the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and My Time Our Place.
These changes will not impact services providing a funded kindergarten program who are required, as a condition of funding, to use the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
The original EYLF will remain in operation in 2023 alongside the updated version, to give services an opportunity to familiarise themselves with the changes. All services that are using the EYLF will need to transition to the updated framework by Monday 1 January 2024.
What has changed
In updating and refreshing each framework, ACECQA has introduced a range of minor changes that clarify and expand on the original frameworks.
Most importantly, 3 new principles of practice have been added to the frameworks, and other related amendments made throughout each.
The 3 new principles are:
- promotion of collaborative leadership
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
