Our staff will be supportive, encouraging and communicate with the children in a friendly, positive, courteous manner to establish a warm and caring relationship with each child in their care. 



Our Program is based on the Early Years Learning Framework.  Both the Framework and the Guide are designed to engage educators in critical thinking, reflection and inquiry.  They recognise that there is not one right way to provide for children’s learning.  They provide a range of ways to think about children’s learning.

Children’s Program

Children who attend our Preschool participate in a range of activities that have been planned to meet their developmental needs.


The staff are responsible for creating an atmosphere and environment which is responsive to the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and special needs of each individual child and to the group as a whole and reflects the philosophy and goals of the service.


The program is child centred, and takes a “hands on” approach, with staff acting as

Facilitator’s who will create an environment and experiences which are stimulating, safe, nurturing and fun.  The program will include indoor/ outdoor learning experiences, quiet and active times, individual, small group and large group interests, children’s special needs and be flexible enough to allow for the spontaneous and the unexpected.


The program is developed as a result of family input, child input or observations made by the staff during the time the child or children are at the centre.  Children are encouraged in a positive and supportive manner to explore their environment and try new experiences.


You will find your child’s program is displayed outside at the sign in area, though their journals, the talking books and daily programs .  We invite you to have input into program development especially in relation to multicultural issues, music and storytelling.  Any suggestions discuss with your child’s teachers.

Group Times – Language group times include stories and discussions, experiments, phonic activities.  Music and Movement group times include singing, use of percussion instruments and movement games.



Programming to Meet Individual Children’s Interests and Needs...


Our program is based on the principle the children will learn in an environment that is stimulating with experiences that will able the child to grow physically, intellectually and socially.  Through a balance of structured play, exploratory learning and group participating children develop and are given the opportunity to meet their full potential.  Children in the Centre will experience:


  • Quality and meaningful interactions with staff


  • Guided group activities which develop a sense of care and respect of others as well as a healthy self-image


  • Programs that are culturally appropriate


  • Programs that foster self-reliance and self-esteem in a positive environment to safely develop the social behaviours which lead to independence and self- control


  • Guidance in a positive way


  • A value of all children as individuals


  • Programs will accommodate diverse abilities and ensure that children are treated without bias regardless of ability, gender, religion and culture.  In valuing and treating children as individuals, it is important for education and care programs to take into account of any support services available e.g. Ethnic workers, Aboriginal support, speech pathologist, early childhood intervention and other therapists.



Children’s Journals...

Each child who attends the centre will have an individual journal. Which is a story about their journey through preschool.  The journal may consist of the following: Parent Information, Children’s Observation, Children’s sample works, Photos, learning stories, me sheet, NQS family information, philosophy and EYLF explanation for families.


Opening a well done portfolio is like opening a treasure chest.  Some items will bring a laugh or a smile, some will spark memories and some items will inspire young learners to try new tasks or retry old tasks.  Please remember Journals are a work in progress that will go with you when your children leave the service.
