The framework provides an opportunity for educators across Australia to work towards:
a clear focus on children's learning and wellbeing
a shared language for curriculum in the early childhood field
a base for planning, promoting and assessing learning

A Families Guide to the Early Years Learning Framework has been developed and is available on Department of Education and Training website.
