EYLF Outcome 5 is all about children becoming effective communicators. Literacy and numeracy skills are important for children to be able to further their understanding and learning of the world around them. By being able to communicate with their caregivers, family members, and peers, they are able to engage in meaningful interaction and build on even more skills that they need in life. This includes decoding visual, auditory, and social cues, expressing their own feelings, and using tools and technologies for self-directed learning.
