Welcome to East Melbourne Childcare Co-operative

East Melbourne Childcare Co-operative incorporates the guiding principles of the National Quality Framework. The Framework entails the Education and Care Services National Law, Education and Care Services National Regulations, National Quality Standard and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

The National EYLF and the Victorian VEYLDF support educators in enhancing young children’s learning and development through the early years by building on their interests and knowledge as well as that of the wider community. The framework contains principles, practices and learning outcomes which assist in fostering the development of the whole child.
