CURRICULUM AND PROGRAMMING FOR CHILD CARE EDUCATION

We embrace the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) curriculum and the National Childcare Laws and regulations. They create a practical starting point to plan open ended, play based programs, in safe, engaging environments with passionate teachers who advocate for health, safety and well-being.

At BELIEVE PLAYSCHOOL we use it as the spine of our approach, it links everything together. From there we create an organic evidence based program taking the best and most effective principles from global approaches. Our play based experiences are hands-on, child-directed with mess, mud, fun, and laughter.

Accelerated Learning through Blended Classes

We offer overlapping ages in our classes to promote accelerated learning through multi-ageing. We don't hold children back based on age, nor do we push them on to the next class before they are ready.

There are 4 classrooms:

  • Nursery (Birth - 2.5 years)
  • Toddlers (2 - 3.5 years)
  • Junior Preschool (3 - 4.5 years)
  • Senior Preschool (4 - 6 years)
