The Early Years Learning Framework

Belonging refers to knowing where and with whom a child belongs. The framework helps kids feel that they belong to a family, a neighbourhood, a cultural group and the wider community.

Being refers to children knowing themselves and building relationships with others. Activities based on the framework lets the children experience the joys and challenges of everyday life. Lastly, becoming refers to the changes that happen during early childhood. It helps the kids learn how to participate actively in society.

Activities at Lyndel Childcare Centre

Our activities, which are based on the EYLF framework, enhance various skills in children. The programs involve working well with others, problem-solving, resolving conflicts and building self-esteem. Various puzzles, books, games and musical activities sharpen their numeracy, language and literacy skills. For instance, the children learn about insects, sea creatures and other elements of nature. In our activities, they practice being professionals like scientists, hairdressers, chefs and artists.
