Our Educational programs are designed to meet each child’s developmental needs and celebrate them as individuals
Each program is designed to incorporate your child’s current interests, skills and knowledge and is implemented after careful planning. Learning opportunities are paired with purposeful teaching strategies to support your child to develop new skills and build upon existing skills.
We ensure that learning is fun, relaxed and is primarily constructed through play. Our learning environments are designed to be challenging and stimulating. Exploration and investigation are central to the programs which encourage each child to be an active participant in their learning.
Underpinning our programs is The Early Years Learning Framework, which is used as a foundation to assist our educators to design a curriculum that encourages children to feel a sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming, while using Learning Outcomes as goals for children to achieve. The Principles and Practices of the EYLF support our carers to enrich the learning of each child and support them to become successful learners.
Each child’s learning is documented; creating a learning portfolio, contained within is information demonstrating progress towards learning outcomes, work samples and photographs. A completed portfolio will show ongoing learning and progress from the beginning of your child’s journey right through until we see them ready for school.
All of our programs promote partnerships between children, educators, parents, management and the community, and actively seek to gather and implement input on a daily basis. Each of our supportive and relaxed environments allow for both planned and spontaneous learning opportunities.
The age groupings of our programs are a guide as we use information about the child as a whole when determining if they are ready to be supported to progress to the next learning environment. Considering that each child is an individual; we look at their current skills and knowledge and confidence levels to ensure that they are transitioned at a time that is in their best interests, rather than using only their age as a factor.
