Our Kindergarten Program

Our Early Childhood Teacher with their team of passionate Educators, implement a Kindergarten program guided by the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The EYLF is a framework approved by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) and School Curriculum and Standards Authority.

The Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines guide Educators to develop Kindergarten Curriculum for Western Australian children. It draws from the key ideas and related content from the EYLF to construct a curriculum to ensure that all children in Kindergarten experience quality teaching and learning.

Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

The EYLF comprises three interrelated elements: Principles, Practice and Learning Outcomes. All elements are based on conclusive research based evidence and are fundamental to decisions made about early childhood pedagogy and curriculum. The pedagogy of the EYLF draws from a range of perspectives from early childhood developmental theory and knowledge about how children learn and what practices best support this.

The Principles and Practice of the EYLF are founded on the understanding that:

  • Children are capable and competent
  • Children actively construct their own learning in social contexts
  • Learning is dynamic, complex and holistic. Physical, social, emotional, personal, spiritual, creative, cognitive and linguistic aspects of learning are interwoven and interrelated
  • Children have agency. They have the capacities and rights to initiate and lead learning and be active participants and decision-makers in matters affecting them.

The five learning outcomes of the EYLF aim to capture the integrated and complex learning and development of all children from birth to age five. They are:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators.
