The Educational Program


Our educational program is child centred and play based using nature and natural materials to facilitate learning.

Early Childhood Teachers and qualified educators develop and deliver the programs of learning using a collaborative planning approach that utilises the varied skills, talents and interests of all of our educators.

Each child's interests and current knowledge are central to the planning of the program, and educators observe, support and document moments along each child’s learning journey, along with information from home and the family, to optimise each child's further learning. 

The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia: BELONGING, BEING, BECOMING, is the framework that guides everything we do with children every day and ensures that all children experience play-based learning that is engaging and builds success for life.

The five Learning Outcomes of the Framework are used to ensure the development of all children across these areas. The outcomes are:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity

  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world

  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

  • Children are confident and involved learners

  • Children are effective communicators

The process of learning and children’s thoughts and ideas of their learning is recorded in Floorbooks, a type of collaborative project book, that educators create with the children each week as they share their ideas and understanding of their learning.

Our educators are skilled in supporting children to develop confidence in themselves and expressing their ideas in

this way. 

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 learners;

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.
