The EYLF is based on Belonging, Being, and Becoming and formulated to improve the learning of children from 0-5 years of age. This framework significantly influenced the learning environment of all the children below five years of age. Early childhood teachers are asked to possess an understanding of child development and different issues related to early education.The activities for the children are planned according to different age groups. In this framework, the educator plays an important role in the proper development of early childhood learning skills. There is high accountability for the outcomes and limited resources for professional development.
