At Goulburn Pre-School we provide a play based program reflecting the key aspects of Being, Belonging and Becoming: Early Years Leaning Framework for Australia.
This is a national document that is designed to provide a framework for high quality educational practices and learning outcomes in early childhood settings.
At Pre-School we encourage the children to initiate play, problem solve, work together co-operatively, share and respect themselves as well as their friends. A positive attitude towards themselves and learning is fostered to begin a life long journey in discovery. We support independence throughout the day in every aspect of the routine from packing away to recognising their belongings and asking for help.
There are many elements of the curriculum that work together. Visual arts, music, literature, language, science, drama, maths are all elements that feature in the children’s play and the many activities on offer. We consider the individual needs of the children, their interests, learning styles and motivations when planning for the day. There are often many projects that evolve throughout the day and continue over a period of weeks and sometimes months!
The following flow of the day is very flexible and adjusted to meet the needs of the children throughout the day. Often times are extended to ensure the children have time to complete projects together.
