At Kinderoos, we believe that play based learning is critical in the early years of a child’s life. Our qualified and dedicated early childhood educators are guided by the National Early Years Learning Framework as it is an essential part of our pedagogy when developing the curriculum. Creating rich interest based emergent curriculum is reinforced in our daily practice and our educators strive to develop an environment that provides children with opportunities that build foundations for the children’s future learning success.
We aim to create a welcoming environment where children and families are encouraged to collaborate with educators to develop a meaningful curriculum. We respect that families play an important role in the education of their children by recognising that families are the first and most influential teachers. We understand the importance of developing and maintaining partnerships with families, valuing our families’ expectations for their child and we aim to engage in shared decision making with families.
The Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning Outcomes:
The Framework provides broad direction for early childhood educators in early childhood settings to facilitate children’s learning.
The National Quality Framework is the result of an agreement between all Australian governments to work together to provide better educational and developmental outcomes for children attending education and care services.
The National Quality Framework drives continuous improvement and consistency in the education and care sector. The initiative aims to improve educator-to-child ratios, increase skills and qualifications, as well as provide national regulations and a quality rating system that informs families of how services rate across the seven National Quality Standards, which are:
At Kinderoos we understand the importance of children’s developmental stages; our programme is designed to be age appropriate and is tailored to children’s individual needs keeping in mind that all children demonstrate their learning in different ways.
Although the routines of each room and age group will vary, the same aspects are contained in each room. We endeavour to provide a home and family environment at the Centre where the children feel comfortable and secure at all times.
Throughout the day the children will be experiencing a number of different activities which are part of the educational and developmental programs operated by all of our staff. The Centre boasts four rooms which will promote a spacious, warm and inviting environment for all our children. The rooms are offered as follows:
