Curriculum | Program
We are dedicated to the education of young children through a combination of rich play based, explorative learning experiences and intentional teaching. We work closely with parents and families to ensure each child's individual needs are catered for in our quality program.
Our learning focus areas are Literacy, Numeracy, Science and Well Being.
We aim to provide quality learning experiences through:
- Effective teaching and learning for all young children, including specialised interventions and enabling learning environments
- A whole site commitment and focus on achieving the best possible learning outcomes for all children
- Planning for children’s interest and passions
- Working within the context of our community
- Assessment for increased learning opportunities
- Meeting the needs of all families and children to achieve a happy, engaging environment where children are free to learn through active involvement and engagement
- A continued commitment to professional development by all educators
- Engaging in regular site evaluation review processes
We plan, program and report using the National Early Years Learning Framework: ‘Belonging, Being and Becoming.’
The above Frameworks and a range of additional supporting curriculum documents are used to plan for children's learning. All educators access Professional Development relevant to the site priorities and the context of the learners.
Belonging: Children belong first to a family, a cultural group, a neighbourhood and a wider community. Belonging acknowledges children's interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in defining identities. In early childhood, and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging.
Being: Childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world. Being recognises the significance of the here and now in children's life.
Becoming: Children's identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills and relationships change during childhood. They are shaped by many different circumstances. Becoming reflects this process of significant change that occurs in the early years as young children learn and grow.
