Early Years Learning Framework

Document Children's Learning using EYLF on Tapestry

Tapestry provides educators with a user-friendly way of documenting children’s learning and development. The resulting e-profiles can support educators and educational leaders in curriculum development and quality improvement, as well as inspiring them to reflect on good practice using the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

The Early Years Learning Framework is comprised of three interwoven parts on Tapestry:

• Outcomes
• Practices
• Principles

The principles drive the practices and the practices drive the outcomes for children.


Using EYLF in your Pedagogical Documentation

Using Tapestry to observe children’s learning, you can easily and quickly link to the sub-outcomes of EYLF, including the indicators, as part of your observations.

These observations, along with your knowledge of the child can help you to reflect on their learning and on your own practices and approaches to Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC).

As part of these reflections, you can use framework tags such as the Principles and Practices of EYLF. These in turn can guide you and provide evidence of areas you are reflecting on to inform your Quality Improvement Plan (QIP).


EYFS Framework Tags


You can also choose to display the outcomes, principles, and practices to families, as part of the child’s e-profile. As well as providing context for their child’s learning experiences, this can also enrich the family’s understanding of their child’s learning journey, sharing what you as educators use to inform your practice.


Tracking Observations and Reflections for EYLF

The evidence teachers collect on Tapestry through observations and reflections provides data for powerful tracking screens, supporting your analysis of a child’s learning journey and encouraging reflective practice for better outcomes for children.

For example, you can quickly search for observations linked to particular sub-outcomes of EYLF.

You might also want to filter for reflections tagged with specific EYLF Principles and Practices such as Intentional teaching.

The learning journal and subsequent tracking enable a deeper pedagogical assessment – especially by the Educational Leader.

Educators, early childhood teachers, educational leaders, directors and approved providers can gain a deeper understanding of the principles and the practices of their philosophy, and how these are influencing the outcomes of children in their care.

Using EYLF on Tapestry allows you to follow and weave the rich and varied threads of a child’s learning journey.
