The My Time, Our Place Framework extends Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) principles, practices and outcomes to school-age care settings. It was designed for educators to use in partnership with children, their families, and the community.
The framework gives a minimum standard of quality for teaching practices that impact the hearts, minds and actions of learners.
Diversity, specifically Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being, is a principle of the Framework.
Teaching and learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being supports the Framework’s five intended learning outcomes:
- Children have a strong sense of identity.
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
- Children are confident and involved learners.
- Children are effective communicators.
