Programs

Throughout the centre we use the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which guides us to provide environments where interactions and experiences enhance childrens 'Belonging, Being and Becoming'. The EYLF encourages us to look at the capabilities and interests of children and provide both structured and spontaneous learning opportunities to promote the development of the whole child.

The EYLF values the learning experiences that early childhood provides for children and details the five (5) learning outcomes that guide our reflective teaching:-

1. Children have a strong sense of identity

2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world

3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

4. Children are confident and involved learners

5. Children are effective communicators
