Curriculum

The National Early Years Learning Framework forms the foundation for ensuring that children in all early childhood education and care settings experience quality teaching and learning.
The aim of the Curriculum is to enrich children’s learning in this vital period of their development, the early years!

icon 02At Unley Early Learning Centre we have an Educational Leader who supports and mentors the Educators on the Curriculum. The Centre has a specific emphasis and passion for learning through play in the early years.

The Early Years Learning Framework Learning Outcomes 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
  • Educators plan and implement individual development experiences for all children

We recognize that play is important in your child’s development. Our program begins when the first child arrives in the morning and continues through the day until the last child leaves in the evening. We aim for total equity with special attention paid to the areas of non-stereotyping of sexes, social justice, physical and cultural acceptance and awareness. There is a program displayed in each room which details the activities and experiences to stimulate and extend your child’s knowledge in all developmental areas. We provide a variety of experiences: free play, group activities, cultural, musical and literacy activities are all a small part of our program. Our programs are designed to allow children to experiment, make their own decisions and reach their own conclusions.

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
We also offer additional activities such as dancing and soccer on rotating days.
