The Program

The learning program is guided by The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia and is underpinned by the five learning outcomes of:

  1. Children have a strong sense of identity.
  2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world.
  3. Children have a strong sense of well-being.
  4. Children are confident and involved learners.
  5. Children are effective communicators.

Learning takes place in a variety of situations -  independent, one-to-one, small groups and large groups in indoor and outdoor environments.

The education program will be based on the needs of individual children. It aims to develop social, emotional and cognitive abilities and enhance language, creative and physical development.

Experiences and activities are sequenced in order to build upon and extend skills and understandings.

A variety of educational approaches is used to promote learning:

  1. child initiated activities guided by the educator
  2. teacher initiated and guided activities
  3. free play and free discovery
  4. child initiated and controlled activities

Preschool Timetable




Educators set up indoor and outdoor environments.


Morning Group Time (Budawa, Nangami)

(for the children to settle and 'check in' with their teacher)


Outside Play

(including progressive Morning Tea from 10am)


Children help to pack away the outdoor environment.


Teacher led Group Time (Budawa and Nangami) followed by Indoor Play.




Indoor Play continues


Children help to pack away the indoor environment, then quietly read books.





Children reflect on their day's learning by watching the day's slideshow on the big screen then get ready to go home.


Preschool finishes and educators have a planning meeting.

Our daily routine is flexible and may change in response to children's interests, weather or special events.
