Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the Kindergarten Curriculum of Australia guides the Cottesloe Child Care Centre’s curriculum. The Framework provides broad direction for early childhood educators in early childhood settings to facilitate children’s learning.
EYLF is an ’emergent curriculum’ – its focus is on the process of learning which is seen as a shared relationship between educators and children and its goal is to respond to each child’s interests.
Children’s interests, highlighted through play, exploration, and inquiry are combined with intentional teaching. The Cottesloe Child Care Centre’s curriculum is constantly evolving and changes on a monthly basis.
Our curriculum has been developed to meet the five EYLF outcomes:
Children have a strong sense of identity
Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Children have a strong sense of well-being
Children are confident and involved learners
Children are effective communicators
