In this week’s blog, we look at the word ‘Being’ which forms the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) that guides our curriculum for childcare and preschool. We have all heard the expression, “live in the moment”, well, that’s exactly what we want our children to do. This is a time for them to be, to explore and make meaning of the world and their place in it.
Experiencing being – Being recognises the significance of the here and now in children’s lives. It is about the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others, engaging with life’s joys and complexities, and meeting challenges in everyday life. The early childhood years are not solely preparation for the future but also about the present.
