EARLY YEARS LEARNING FRAMEWORK
The Centre's program provides a wide range of experiences to encourage the children's curiosity and learning. Our programs take into account children's interest and developmental needs. Our current curriculum follows the Early Years Learning Framework planning cycle and involves interactive decision making by children, families and educators.
All activities are carefully selected to help develop each child's creative, language and personal, cognitive (thinking & reasoning), fine and gross motor co-ordination, as well as social and emotional development. Our programs are based from current Early Childhood research that recognises that Children learn through play. As a result activities include a variety of art, craft, block play, construction, cognitive games, pre-number, pre-reading, cooking, science and math’s activities, technology activities, performances, excursions, singing/ music and movement, dance, outdoor games, sand play and water play activities.
Activities are planned in all key learning areas of the curriculum, including English (language), Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts, Society and Its Environment and the Personal Development and Health of the children. The programs are on display in each classroom.
CHILDREN LEARN THROUGH PLAY
At Keppel Street Kindy the children have the opportunity to participate in a variety of developmentally appropriate and interest based activities that extend all areas of their development using a holistic approach. These activities are lots of fun and the children are unaware that they are learning as they play.
Staff complete regular observations on each child and plan learning outcomes that assist each individual child. Parents are able to discuss their child's development with their teacher at any time.
Our School Readiness Program allows children to participate in a variety of activities, covering all areas of their development to prepare them for “Big School”.
