Being, Belonging, Becoming
Guided by the National Quality Framework (NQF) and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF), our program is focused on helping your child to:
- develop a strong sense of identity
- become connected with and contribute to their world
- develop a strong sense of well-being
- be confident and involved learners
- become effective communicators
We plan experiences based on the children’s interests
This helps children learn through things they enjoy doing and encourages them to develop and express their own ideas.
We provide sensory and ‘open-ended’ experiences
Pasting, painting, water, sand, clay, dough, dress ups, blocks etc. all provide experiences for which there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ solution. Children are able to manipulate and comfortably explore their surroundings.
We involve parents
By being involved, parents and staff gain the chance to share their perceptions, concerns and ideas and can join in with children’s play without everyday household distractions. The increased adult-child ratio allows for more interaction on a one-to-one basis. Parents can observe what happens in the kindergarten and their presence helps develop trust and confidence between adults and children, promoting a feeling of community.
We constantly assess children’s development
The program is adapted, when necessary, in order to take account of each child’s development. Our extensive early learning and development philosophy can be viewed when you visit our kindergarten.
