Our curriculum is planned and assessed using the Early Years Learning Framework: Belonging, Being, Becoming. This is a National Curriculum for all early childhood settings.
More information is available in the brochure below:
Curriculum information is displayed for families throughout the centre and next to the sign on sheet inside the main door. Please take some time to stop and read these displays every now and then.
Each term the staff document the children’s learning for families in a Term Review. The Term Review outlines the teaching and learning that the children have been involved in related to the term focus topic. Other child initiated learning is also included.
Our staff collect a range of information about children’s learning at kindergarten. This information includes work samples, photographs, observations and learning stories. All of these things are collated along with term reviews into a portfolio that they will keep as a record of their time and learning at kindergarten.
At the end of each child’s time at kindergarten our staff write a Statement of Learning which gives families information about their children’s time at kindergarten. With permission a copy of the Statement of Learning is forwarded to the child’s school to support their transition to school.
