We see children as unique and capable individuals, who come to our Service with their own interests, talents, skills, and ideas. We as Educators are well trained and passionate. We value, respect and appreciate this uniqueness. We feel children have a right to be active participants in their own learning and must be empowered to express their views and ideas. A child’s opinion must be valued for its validity to their perspective and their autonomy and initiative needs to be respected. At Do-Re-Mi each child regardless of race, gender, religion or ability is given the same opportunities as every other child. We as Educators will protect and cherish the innocence of children and thus provide a safe and secure environment. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) provides a guide to help us work with your child to actively promote children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills
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 a more individualistic and meaningful involvement by the children. We believe children are unique individuals who develop at their own rate, and thus by providing enriching, meaningful and realistic opportunities children will 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 and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills (EYLF). Our services prides itself on helping our older children with a smooth transition to school. We collaborate with local school’s to gain information that will help our students feel confident and prepared. Our program invites discussion, critical thinking and links the EYLF to the Early Stage 1 NSW Educational Standards through play based experiences.
