Children are more likely to be confident and involved learners when their family and community experiences and understandings are recognised and included in the early childhood setting. The following article provides activities to promote each of the sub-outcomes of EYLF Outcome 4 - Children Are Confident And Involved Learners.  

A strong sense of well-being provides children with confidence and optimism which maximises their learning potential. It encourages the development of children’s innate exploratory drive, a sense of agency and a desire to interact with others. Well-being includes good physical health, feelings of happiness, satisfaction and successful social functioning. It influences the way children interact in their environments. The following article provides activities to promote each of the sub outcomes of EYLF Outcome 3 - Children Have A Strong Sense of Wellbeing.

When children move into early childhood settings they broaden their experiences as participants in different relationships and communities. When educators create environments in which children experience mutually enjoyable, caring and respectful relationships with people and the environment, children respond accordingly. The following article provides activities to promote each of the sub outcomes of EYLF Outcome 2: Children Are Connected With And Contribute To Their World.


When children feel safe, secure and supported they grow in confidence to explore and learn. In early childhood settings children develop a sense of belonging when they feel accepted, develop attachments and trust those that care for them. As children are developing their sense of identity, they explore different aspects of it (physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive), through their play and their relationships. The following article provides activities to promote each of the sub outcomes of EYLF Outcome 1: Children Have A Strong Sense Of Identity.

Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia embeds art in many significant ways to foster the holistic development of children. Here are the main curriculum connections of art in the early childhood learning framework.

The EYLF Main Outcome Posters includes each of the main outcomes of the early years learning framework. These can be used as a display around the room to show how children achieve each outcome.

EYLF Learning Outcomes Posters can be used to display within the service or used as a reference for documentation and planning. The Learning Outcomes are to be used to reflect on children’s learning and focus on what a child can achieve.

Here is the list of the EYLF Learning Outcomes that you can use as a guide or reference for your documentation and planning. The EYLF Learning Outcomes are goals which can be achieved by a child during their learning. The outcomes and sub outcomes cover a variety of areas which include identity, community, wellbeing, learning and communication. They are to be used when documenting children's play and to be added to various experiences and activities on the curriculum plan in order to guide children's learning.

To support children achieve learning outcomes from the EYLF Framework, the following list gives educators examples of how to help children with their goals. It also encourages and promotes each individual outcome throughout the early childhood setting.

This is a guide for educators on what to observe under each sub learning outcome from the EYLF Framework, when a child is engaged in play and learning. Educators can plan experiences for the curriculum and for individual learning and gain an understanding on how children can achieve each individual outcome.
