Early Years Learning Framework

The Centre uses the EYLF framework in relation to informing parents of the integrated nature of Learning Areas and Outcomes.  We are guided by the Numeracy and Literacy indicators when assessing children’s work and development.  We promote the Learning Dispositions as essential criteria for all children to develop and to encourage life long powerful learners.

Core Values

We are committed to working in partnership with our children, families, community and staff to provide a high quality, relevant and responsive education and care programme to all children.  The preschool will develop skills:

  • that will equip children for life long learning and develop a prositive self concept
  • promote the understanding tolerance and acceptance of others through the provision of an accessible, inclusive play based programme.
  • developing confident and independent learners in a safe, caring and positive environment

Specific curriculum approaches

Our program is based on the individual needs, strengths and interests of each child.  Outcomes are monitored and recorded for reporting to famiies, the local school and community. There is a strong emphasis on the development of literacy, numeracy, social skills and well being.
