CURRICULUM

CURRICULUM
We recognise that each child is an individual – we support each child as they develop at their own pace. Intentional and incidental learning experiences are incorporated into each child’s play in an atmosphere of warmth and respect.

Our programming follows the Building Waterfalls curriculum developed by the Crèche and Kindergarten (C&K) Association of Queensland, and the Early Years Learning Framework (the National Curriculum).

Our programming follows the Building Waterfalls curriculum developed by the Crèche and Kindergarten (C&K) Association of Queensland, and the Early Years Learning Framework (the National Curriculum).

The Building Waterfalls curriculum focuses on four shared understandings:

 

Connecting

We are connected to family, community and country

We connect with and build upon what we know

We are connected to a natural and sustainable world

Enlarging

We are valued and treated with equity, dignity and respect

We feel safe, nurtured and cared for

We share satisfying interactions and relationships

 

Listening

We are open and sensitive to new possibilities and perspectives

We express, share and honour values, beliefs and traditions

We contribute to a democratic learning environment

 

Exploring

We are unique, rich in ideas, experiences and knowledge

We are competent and capable learners, thinkers and inquirers

We create, represent and communicate our understanding in many ways

The Early Years Learning Framework guides curriculum decision making for Early Childhood Teachers and supports each child’s learning in five outcome areas:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity

  2. Children are connected and contribute to their world

  3. Children have a strong sense of well-being

  4. Children are confident and involved learners

  5. Children are effective communicators.

 

Building Waterfalls complements the Early Years Learning Framework and the Queensland Government Kindergarten Learning Guideline and embraces their vision that “all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life.”
