About the Evidence Papers
The evidence papers document research on each practice principle in the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework.
Each paper describes what the practice principle is; why it’s important to teaching and learning; how professionals engage in best-practice; and the implications for best practice.
About the Practice Guides
The VEYLDF practice guides have been developed to provide practical advice for early childhood professionals about each of the practice principles in the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework. The guides are written for all early childhood professionals, and are intended to encourage critical reflection, discussion, debate, and action.
Each guide includes examples of ways to work that reflect the Practice Principles, from a range of early childhood professionals across a range of settings.
The Department would like to thank all the early childhood professionals who contributed to the guides, including professionals from:
- Anglicare Victoria
- Boroondara Children’s Centre
- Caulfield Child Care
- Frankston North Early Years Network
- Glen Eira Family Day Care
