Our service is guided by the National Quality Framework and the Early Years Learning Framework. These frameworks guide and shape the curriculum for all education and care services for children in Australia.
By combining a strong learning program, qualified educators and a safe, stimulating childcare environment, we create meaningful experiences for your child every day.
The National Quality Framework is a government initiative which sets a National Quality Standard creating greater consistency for early childhood education and care services across Australia. The initiative aims to improve educator-to-child ratios in services, increased skills and qualifications, national regulations and quality ratings system which will help you to make informed choices about the education and care you choose for your child.
Our centre aims to exceed the National Quality Standards across all areas of service. We have a quality improvement plan in place to show what is happening in our centre to achieve this. This will look at areas such as educational programmes and practice, children's health and safety, physical environment, staffing arrangements, relationships with children, and collaborative partnerships with families and communities.
For more information about the National Quality Framework, please speak with the centre Director or visit www.acecqa.gov.au.
The Early Years Learning Framework is a national Early Learning Framework for children from birth to five years. As the early years are a vital time for children to learn and develop, the framework has been developed to ensure your child receives a quality educational program.
Educators will use the framework in partnership with families to develop learning programs responsive to children's ideas, interests, strengths and abilities and recognise that children loran through play. The Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming.
Belonging is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationship they have with their family, community, culture and place.
Being is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just 'be' - time to play, try new things, and have fun.
Becoming is about the learning and development that young people experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from an early age, which shape the type of adult they will become.
Our Centre has had a major makeover this year!
We updated all of our resources and furnishings; which along with the recently completed renovations give our Centre a modern look whilst still maintaining the homely feel we have nurtured over the years.
