Our Programme

Our programme aims to promote the development of the whole child through the incorporation of a child-centred programme that caters to the holistic development of each child, while building on strength, interest and knowledge of the world around them.

We implement a child-centred programmed based upon the principles outlined in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).

Each child is observed regularly throughout the year. The programme is based on these observations and caters to the individual needs and interests of each child. Educators design individual portfolios for each child that includes observations and work samples for children to take home. Parents can make informed decisions as to school readiness with the support of qualified educators.


Play provides opportunities for children to learn as they discover and make sense of the world they live in; about themselves and others; their surroundings or environment, and how all of these are inter-related. Play helps to cultivate and refine all the areas of development through practice, and by providing opportunities and tools for promotion of learning in the early years.

Staff aim to promote the development of the child by fostering:

- knowing where and with whom you belong is integral to human existence. Children belong first to a family, a cultural group, a neighbourhood and a wider community. Belonging acknowledges children’s interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in defining identities. In early childhood, and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging. Belonging is central to being and becoming in that it shapes who children are and who they can become.

- recognises the significance of the here and now in children’s lives. It is about the present and them knowing themselves, building and maintaining relationships with others, engaging with life’s joys and complexities, and meeting challenges in everyday life. The early childhood years are not solely preparation for the future but also about the present.

- Children’s identities, knowledge, understandings, capacities, skills and relationships change during childhood. They are shaped by many different events and circumstances. Becoming reflects this process of rapid and significant change that occurs in the early years as young children learn and grow. It emphasises learning to participate fully and actively in society. *
