How Home Learning Works

We are moving through extraordinary times right now. For some we know you are actively managing things; for some, just coping; and some of you we know may be struggling. This reference sheet is to set your mind at ease in regards to your child’s continuity of learning. Our partnership with you is key. Through our relationship and regular connection with you, we can do what we do best – support you and your child’s learning, allowing you to do what you do best – parent and be a family.

How Home Learning Works

First and foremost, you are the people best positioned to know what’s happening at home and where everyone is at emotionally and practically. What Home Learning involves is:

  • Some structure
  • A little time for formal learning
  • An abundance of play

And we all have a role:

Early Years Learning Framework

Belonging, Being and Becoming - The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) describes the principles, practices and outcomes that support and enhance young children's learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school.

The framework is a key component of the National Quality Framework for early childhood education and care. The EYLF was developed by the Australian and state and territory governments with input from the early childhood sector and early childhood academics. It has incorporated feedback from a consultation process, including two national symposiums, national public consultation forums, focus groups, an online forum and case-study trials.

The framework offers a vision where 'all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life'. It has been designed so that early childhood services will be able to develop their own strategies to implement its objectives.

Families looking for more information on the EYLF can use the Information for Families Guide.

Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum is designed to develop successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. It is presented as a progression of learning from Foundation - Year 10 that makes clear to teachers, parents, students and others in the wider community what is to be taught, and the quality of learning expected of young people as they progress through school.
