The Early Years Learning Framework, is the basis for all our programming.
All of our staff have had training and experience in areas of early childhood education. Due to our high standard and commitment of our staff, we are able to provide developmental and educational programs for each group of children.
The staff will develop a weekly program, observe the children in their care and plan their programs around the needs and interests of the children in child free time.
If your educator feels there is an area of concern, they will inform you and advise where help may be sought, e.g. speech therapist. It is always your decision to follow this up. Staff are willing to discuss any aspect of development with parents.
