Our educational program is built upon the outlines of the Early Years Learn Framework (EYLF).
Our aim is to encourage families and children to take an active, meaningful and rewarding approach to involving themselves in the design and implementation of our education program.
Through a collaborative approach we feel we are able to create a relevant, educational and rewarding experience for all involved where family input is seen to be acted on, acknowledged and promoted to support us in developing our understanding of children’s developmental abilities, interests and different cultures.
The five key learning outcomes acknowledge how all children from birth to five years, learn in a variety of ways and are the guiding influence when each experience.
The Early Years Learning framework addresses five key learning outcomes which are;
Outcome 1: Children have a strong sense of identity.
Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing.
Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners.
Outcome 5: Children are effective communicators.
As educators expand on experiences they allow children to develop a wide range of new skills while master existing ones. Through intentional teaching practices children’s learning is built on and scaffolded to engage them not only through the activity but also through discussions with educators, peers and family members which may continue to occur once the activity has passed.

Through daily experiences we endeavour to educate each child in a respectful, positive and rewarding manner. Through these experiences we aim to deliver meaningful lessons based on each child’s interests and developmental stages.
