Educational Program

Our programs are informed and supported by, the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The EYLF is a national curriculum for early childhood education. It’s emphasis is on the child and family ‘Belonging, Being, & Becoming’. The Framework draws on international evidence that early childhood is a vital period in children’s learning and development. TThe EYLF places emphasis on our relationships with the children and their families and the implementation of an interest/play-based learning environment.

The Styles Street Childcare educational program is divided into three stages: Wumbats, Gugans and Burrus.

Routine:

Our program for each room takes into account the need and importance for indoor and outdoor play, projects of learning, group times, structured learning experiences and sleep and rest times.

In the afternoons, children from the two oldest groups play together for one hour.

All rooms are together for the first and last hour of the day for family grouping and ratios.
