At Preschool we believe that each child has the right to be their own person, by exploring their imagination, expressing themselves and being heard, because their thoughts and opinions are important to them. We provide a safe and fun learning environment where children are able to play with toys, get muddy and jump in puddles and have the chance to be a superhero if they desire. Our learning environment provides challenging, flexible, inclusive and stimulating opportunities to allow children to learn and develop through purposeful play.
Our Preschool program aims to represent quality care as set by the National Quality Standards and reflects the principles, practices and outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework, which provides a guide for us to promote children’s learning using researched best practice strategies. Both preschools have been assessed as meeting or exceeding all National Quality Standards.
The Early Years Learning Framework is made up of five learning outcomes:
Children have a strong sense of identity
Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Children are confident and involved learners
Children are effective communicators
Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
