Our service is committed to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF))
Early Years Learning Framework
Each child’s learning will be based on their interests and strengths and guided by our educators.
Educators must work in collaboration with families to provide relevant learning experiences for each child, based on their interests and family experiences.
Every child will be equally valued and their achievements and learning celebrated.
Educators will observe and record the strengths and learning of each child.
Educators will work closely with children and families to generate ideas for the curriculum.
Learning Outcomes will be linked to the curriculum during and after each child’s learning has occurred. The curriculum must not be pre-programmed to match specific Learning Outcomes.
The curriculum will be based on the children’s interests, educators extending children’s interests, spontaneous experiences and family input.
Where appropriate, the service will liaise with external agencies and support individuals to best educate and care for children with additional needs.
EYLF Learning Outcomes
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.
Observations of all children enrolled in our service will be documented and kept for future reference and reflection, through use of portfolios. Children’s portfolios will be available for a child’s family members to observe. Portfolios will be added to regularly by educators, families, and children and reflected upon by educators to ensure the curriculum for each child remains relevant to their interests and developmental stage.
Over 50% of our educators hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care or equivalent.
All educators either hold or are studying towards a Certificate 3 in Early Childhood Education and Care.
Our Educational Leader, Sophie is in charge of the Centre's learning curriculum.
Quality Educators and Peace of Mind
Our centre is part of the National Quality Framework and we are implementing the Early Years Learning Framework(EYLF). Our staff are selected for their caring and compassionate nature as much as for their experience and qualifications.
We also work closely with local organisations to facilitate quality care for children with additional needs. Our educators are constantly updating their knowledge through professional development which complies with the curriculum requirements of the Education and Care Regulatory Unit.
