Our Early Years Curriculum

It is our belief that all children bring their perspectives, expectations, knowledge and skills to their learning journey. Our programs are child focused and initiated, inspired by children’s curiosity and imagination designed to nurture the development and growth of each child.

Programming is based on observing children on a regular basis, evaluating their needs and interests and planning future activities from these observations.

Our curriculum is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), with a holistic approach, to incorporate all areas of learning and development.

This has a specific emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication, language, numeracy, social and emotional development.

Educators document children’s learning through a variety of methods including:

  • Storypark
  • Individual observations of the child
  • Group observations of the child
  • Recording learning with photos
  • Collecting children's writing, drawing & artwork
  • Voice recordings
  • Feedback & information from families

STEM in the Early Years 

What does STEM mean in early childhood education? 

Researchers and educators agree: Children demonstrate a clear readiness to engage in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning early in life. Just as with language and literacy, STEM education should start early in order to maximise its benefits and effectiveness.

What is STEM? STEM Philisophy "STEM is a way  of thinking about how educators at all levels - including parents - should be helping students integrate knowledge across disciplines, encouraging them to think in a more connected and holistic way" (Sneideman, 2013)

Why we use STEM learning techniques?

1. STEM get schildren excited to learn

2. STEM breeds curiosity, which
strengthens brain development

3. STEM teaches children to fail - trial and error is a key component to children's success.

4. STEM prepares children for today’s technology

5. STEM fosters creativity…and creativity requires STEM

6. Engineers, inventors, scientists, and artists change the world and it all starts here

7. STEM is fun
