The process of learning and children’s thoughts and ideas of their learning is recorded in Floorbooks, a type of collaborative project book, that are created with the children as they share their ideas and contribute their understandings at their own level.
Our educators are skilled in supporting children in this type of learning and developing confidence in themselves in this way. Through their actions and use of language educators scaffold and support independence and self reliance for children as they are ready.
Our Goals for Learning
1. For children to begin to acquire the skills and knowledge for them to become:
successful lifelong learners
confident and creative individuals
active and informed citizens
2. To ensure, through play based experiences and quality teaching practices, all children have the opportunity to be engaged in an early childhood program that prioritises interactions and relationship building, with positive learning experiences, both planned and unplanned, to enhance their early childhood experience, and contribute to their success as they learn
3. To work in partnership with families, other educators and the community using the outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework to guide planning for children’s learning.
4. To make curriculum decisions that uphold children’s rights to have their culture, identity, ability and strengths acknowledged, valued and responded to.
ACP Reconciliation Action Plan
Over the last three years, our educators have worked on improving their own knowledge and understanding of indigenous culture.
This has involved taking part in Professional Development and committing as a team to be on a journey of continuous improvement ensuring that indigenous perspectives, local indigenous culture and knowledge are central to our program.
In 2020, we published our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which now guides our progress towards embedding and acknowledging indigenous perspectives across the preschool and within the educational program.
