From today, 01 February 2024, both EYLF 2.0 and MTOP 2.0 will now come into effect and services will have to implement the new updated frameworks.
The updates to both frameworks result from a robust process to assess options and provide recommendations for change. This included reviewing contemporary research, comprehensive stakeholder engagement, and piloting proposed changes across various education and care settings.
The main differences you will see are a stronger connection between the frameworks and the National Quality Standard in areas such as transitions, sustainability, theoretical approaches, critical reflection, the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of being, knowing and doing, inclusion and the addition of three new principles.
