Our kindergarten respects, values and is informed by the Victorian Early Years Development Framework. This framework helps to shape the educational program offered to your children. When planning and implementing it, our objective is to work towards achieving each of the five “Early Years Learning and Development Outcomes” which are represented in the Framework.
These outcomes guide how we help children to:
- develop a strong sense of identity
- connect with and contribute to their world
- have a strong sense of physical and emotional well-being
- become confident learners
- become effective communicators
Play is given the greatest priority within our program as play is the basis of all learning and encourages creativity, self-expression and independence.
It is our belief that children need to feel positive about their own self-worth; therefore, it is of utmost importance that each child values themselves for what they are and what they can offer to others.
The staff model appropriate behaviours and provide guidance where necessary to help children socialise, develop respect for one another, assume responsibilities for their actions and resolve conflicts.
The success of our program is reliant on a positive partnership between parents and staff. It is not only the influence of kindergarten staff but that of parents, peers and the general community that helps to achieve the overall growth in the child.
We aim to work together with you to provide the very best for your child’s welfare and education.
