In Early Childhood Education, the curriculum is not the focus—the children are. We feel that a meaningful, integrated, emergent curriculum using EYLF as the framework is the most beneficial to children’s learning across all developmental domains. A curriculum in which children are active participants and collaborators allows for more individualistic and meaningful involvement of the children. We believe children are unique individuals who develop at their own rate; therefore, we provide enriching, meaningful and realistic opportunities so children can explore, create, discover and imagine.
Our programs reflect planned and spontaneous experiences designed to support children’s development in all domains. Through the EYLF, the program will see educators use intentional teaching, (it’s deliberate, purposeful and thoughtful). Educators who engage in intentional teaching recognise that learning occurs in social contexts and that interactions and conversations are vitally important for learning. They actively promote children’s learning through worthwhile, challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills (EYLF).
