The 5 Outcomes

The 5 Learning Outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework were developed to capture the integrated and complex learning and development of all children from 0-5 years old. The outcomes are:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity
  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  3. Children have a strong sense of well-being
  4. Children are confident and involved learners
  5. Children are effective communicators.

Learning Influencers

The outcomes are broad and observable. They recognise that young children learn in a number of ways and vary in their capabilities and learning speed. Over time children engage with increasingly complex ideas and learning experiences, which are transferable to other circumstance. Learning in relation to the outcomes is influenced by:

  • each child’s current capabilities, dispositions and learning preferences
  • educators’ practices and the early childhood environment
  • engagement with each child’s family and community
  • the integration of learning across the outcomes.

 

Children’s learning is continuous and each child will advance towards the outcomes in different and equally important ways. Learning isn’t always predictable and linear. Educators should plan with each child and the outcomes in mind.

The Learning Outcomes show how the 3 elements of the EYLF: Principles, Practices and Outcomes join to guide curriculum decision-making and assessment to promote children’s learning.

Demonstrating Learning

Primary components of learning in each outcome are expanded to provide examples of proof that educators;  may observe in children as they learn. Examples of practice to promote children’s learning are also included.

There will be numerous different ways that children exhibit learning within and across the outcomes. Educators appreciate, engage with and promote children’s learning. They discuss with families and communities to form locally based decisions, relevant to each child and their community.

There is provision for educators to list particular examples of evidence and practice that are socially and contextually relevant to each child and their settings.

The points depicted within each outcome are relevant to children of all ages. Knowledge of individual children, their strengths and capabilities will direct educators’ professional judgement to guarantee all children are participating in a range of experiences across all the EYLF Learning Outcomes in manners that improve their learning
