From 23rd July – We are excited to advise we will be offering our 3-5 year olds a new added program known as Early Start which will involve added teachings including music, languages & multi-sports.
The new Early Start Programs will be on top of our existing comprehensive program and will aim to enhance the great work already being done by our educators at Erina kindergarten and to support our 3-5 year olds to achieve the five learning outcomes:
• Children have a strong sense of identity
• Children are connected with and contribute to their world
• Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
• Children are confident and involved learners
• Children are effective communicators.
Our team and early start providers will use a play-based approach which aligns with the principles and practices outlined in the framework. In particular:
• Secure, respectful and reciprocal relationships
• Partnerships with families
• High expectations and equity
• Respect for diversity
• Ongoing learning and reflective practice
• Holistic approaches
• Responsiveness to children
• Learning through play
• Intentional teaching
• Learning environments
• Continuity of learning and transitions
Early Start Programs are committed to goal 2 of the Melbourne Declaration on Education Goals for Young Australians which is that all young Australians become:
• Successful learners
• Confident and creative individuals
• Active and informed citizens.
