The early childhood years are not only preparation for the future but also about the present. We understand that childhood is a time of belonging, being and becoming.
Working in partnerships with families, educators will provide a safe, stimulating, caring and responsive environment where children are able to explore and develop their ideas, interests, strengths, and abilities through play.
We recognise the importance of the early childhood phase of development and encourage the unity between children, educators, parents and the wider community.
The early years learning framework provides broad direction for educators to facilitate children’s learning. The three inter-related elements of the framework: Principles, Practices and Learning Outcomes are fundamental to early childhood pedagogy and curriculum decision making.
Educators will use the framework to create learning environments that build on each child’s interests and abilities.
Through the framework five learning goals educators will assist all children to develop:
A strong sense of their identity
Connections with their real world
A strong sense of wellbeing
Confidence and involvement in their learning: and
Effective communication skills.
Our curriculum promotes the development of the whole child and reflects the individual learning needs of each child. We encourage respect and trust amongst the children, educators, parents and community, regardless of cultural background, ability, gender or family structure.
