OUR CURRICULUM

Early Steps Child Care Centre follows the Early Years Learning Framework, and we use the Story Park app to share children’s learning progress with families.

Our curriculum encompasses all the interactions, routines, and experiences in their environment. Through close relationships, the voice of each child can be listened to, information gathered and analysed, ensuring a meaningful curriculum is developed for each child. We recognise that families are central to a child’s learning therefore we will actively seek families input into our daily programme. We strive to build a positive relationship with the child and the families as we believe that shared learning is only possible in an environment where relationships are characterised by mutual respect, trust, effective communication, compassion, and responsiveness.

Fundamental to the Early Years Learning Framework is a view of children’s lives as characterized by Belonging, Being and Becoming. Before birth children are connected to their family, community, and culture Their earliest development and learning takes place through these relationships, particularly within families who are the child’s first and most influential educators. As children participate in everyday life, they develop interests and construct their identities and understandings of the world.

The following Learning Outcomes are skills, knowledge, or dispositions that educators can actively promote in Early Childhood settings in collaboration with children and families.
