Early Years Learning Framework

Our program is guided by a national framework and is centred on the individual child and it’s family. We base our program on the following 5 learning outcomes:


Children have a strong sense of identity


Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

Connect & Contribute

Children feel a sense of belonging in the world and learn how they can contribute.


Children are confident and involved learners


Children are effective communicators

As we incorporate these outcomes into the learning framework we can provide a holistic and well rounded experience for the beginning of your child’s early development. We know that every child is different and we believe that it is important to provide guidance and assistance that allows your child to develop in their own natural way
