Guiding Priciples and Practices
Our educational program is guided by the Priciples and Practices of the Early Years Learning Framework, C&K's Curriculum Approach and the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines
Our Educators plan play-based learning experiences that offer opportunities for children to explore, problem solve, imagine, create and develop friendships. Children build on their social and emotional understanding and capabilities in language, literacy, numeracy, science, technology and the arts.
We believe every child has the right to play and experience a happy fulfilling childhood. We honour children's developing competencies and contributions to our kindergartens community.
We use a range of contemporary Kindergarten framework to underpin our planning for and practices with children.
The guiding learning frameworks are developed from a range of theories and research reports. Each framework acknowledges the importance of early children education and the rights of children.
The frameworks align with objectives and practices that assist children transition to school.
