Our programme is based on the National Quality Standard incorporating the Early Years Learning Framework. It is enhanced constantly to ensure we are including topics and special news that reflect the current interests and development levels of the children. Our programme is flexible and emergent.
Each child has progress records maintained to aid programming and development. Parents are encouraged to access this information via a web-based programme. These records, along with the children's current interests and competencies, form the basis of our daily programme. All children will experience learning that is engaging, and this is a foundation that builds success in life.
Fundamental to the Early Years Learning Framework is a view of children's lives as characterised by Belonging, Being, & Becoming which becomes apparent through the five learning outcomes within EYLF.
- CHILDREN HAVE A STRONG SENSE OF IDENTITY
- CHILDREN ARE CONNECTED WITH, & CONTRIBUTE TO, THEIR WORLD
- CHILDREN HAVE A STRONG SENSE OF WELLBEING
- CHILDREN ARE CONFIDENT & INVOLVED LEARNERS CHILDREN ARE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATORS
Come into our rooms where you can see our Daily Journal and the Weekly Programme outline. Look around the walls at displays of Learning Stories of how your child has engaged in specific activities which have evolved through their immediate interest, and have been extended by the Educators, through the provision of stimulating experiences.
Within our programme, we incorporate Christian values, and have a special 'values' group time during of each day to further develop positive relationships with God and with others - sharing, and showing sensitivity, compassion, kindness, friendship and acceptance towards others.
