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. 

Inclusion Support program

Alstonville Community Preschool is committed to inclusion for all children with diverse cultural backgrounds, differing abilities and learning differences, and actively supports their full participation in a quality early childhood preschool program.


  • Funding is available through the NSW Department of Education to help children with High Learning Support Needs participate in the preschool program and progress successfully with their learning goals along with their peers;

  • Educators work in partnership with local therapists, key workers, inclusion support agencies and schools to ensure inclusion is embedded in all aspects of the preschool's operation.
