A National Framework for Early Learning

Tiny Tots Childcare follows the Early Years Learning Framework version 2.0 (EYLF) . The framework focuses on your child’s learning based on your child’s interests and abilities The early years learning framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming.

  1. Belonging: to my family, friends and the community shaping who children are and who they can become
  2. Being: developing their identity, building and maintaining relationships with others and meeting challenges in everyday life
  3. Becoming: Connections and capabilities to become a valued member of society

Through the frameworks five learning outcomes educators will assist your child to develop :

  • A strong sense of identity
  • Connections and contributions to their world
  • A strong sense of wellbeing
  • Into a confident & involved learner
  • Into effective communicators

Our curriculum framework is based on developing the optimum potential for each and every child taking into account their own unique interests and stage of development. Learning is based on play and using the child’s interests to expand their play into exploring, discovering, creating, learning social skills and learning all about themselves and the world they live in.  Every child is treated as an individual, they all have their own unique personalities. Our experienced educators program to ensure every child feels a sense of belonging.

Child initiated play and learning is a big part of our program, giving the children the choice developing and learning through their own interests. Intentional teaching by educators still takes place where we incorporate music, art & craft, story-telling, imaginative play, playing games to develop their knowledge of letters, colours, shapes etc. and they have a wide array of educational toys to develop their skills. We offer Happy Feet Fitness classes and Planet Soccer also attends the centre twice a week to keep children active while developing gross motor and co-ordination skills.

We have many community organisations come and visit the centre for incursions.  These include educational talks and activities with the children e.g. a dentist, animal farm, firefighters, police, ambulance and community elders.

Outdoor play involves climbing on our many different play gyms, bikes, ball games, sand-pit play, water play, doll and prams, scooters, swings, balancing beams, growing plants and learning about all the natural elements.

I hope this gives you a bit of a general view of our day at Tiny Tots. It’s lots of fun!
