The Early Years Framework enables Mawson Primary School’s early childhood educators within the preschool settings to extend and enrich children's learning, provide opportunities for children to develop a foundation for learning and for children to become successful learners.

Within the Early Years Learning Framework there are three basic concepts that characterise children’s lives - Belonging, Being and Becoming. This refers to how a child is linked to family, community, culture and place. Through relationships a child's development and learning takes place. They begin to explore, develop interests, create their own identity and make meaning of the world around them. The three concepts, Belonging, Being & Becoming, represent life and living and are constantly referred to throughout the EYLF.
