Have your say

You can complete a survey to let us know what you think needs to be updated.

These surveys have been designed to facilitate sharing  of key stakeholders' ideas, insights and perspectives. Especially educators, providers, families, communities, peak organisations and government policy makers.

The overall project comprises three key stages of work:

  • Stage 1: Identifying potential areas for updating the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and My Time Our Place Framework (MTOP) to inform a public discussion paper (May / June 2021),
  • Stage 2: Gathering stakeholder insights and evidence to determine the areas that should be updated in the EYLF and MTOP (August / September 2021),
  • Stage 3: Piloting the updated EYLF and MTOP in diverse early childhood education centres (ECEC) and out of school hours care (OSHC) services (Nov 2021 - March 2022).

Stage 1

We are seeking your views on current strengths of the EYLF and MTOP, as well as gaps and suggested areas for change and improvement.

The survey takes approximately 10–15 minutes to complete. You do not have to identify yourself and you can skip questions if you wish, to concentrate on the areas that are most important to you. Surveys are also available in five different languages for families.

We have tailored the survey for different groups:
