Early Intervention

Annandale Public School Early Intervention (EI)

We endeavour to provide opportunities for all children to achieve individual milestones and set goals to the highest standards. The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) in conjunction with the NSW curriculum guides the program delivered at APS. This framework focuses on children's development and their lives as characterised by Belonging, Being and Becoming.

Belonging

Belonging is integral to who children are and who they become; recognising that children belong to their family, culture, heritage and community.

Being

Being is about acknowledging the present and the children learning about themselves, making connections and forming relationships with others and engaging in life's joys and complexities being in the moment.

Becoming

Many events shape the lives of children and their families and carers. Becoming reflects these changes and focuses on the knowledge, understanding and capabilities the children acquire with each new experience.

Our mission is to enhance the lives of children and their families and benefit the community through early intervention learning along with practical and caring support.

Our vision is to be recognised as the leading provider of quality early intervention and to ensure every child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential in life.

We believe early intervention should be a right, not a privilege, just like any education. We believe all children:-

  • Can learn and have the right to an education;
  • Benefit from programs based on individual needs;
  • Learn using different learning styles and at different rates;
  • Are individuals, with differing personalities, needs, wants, interests and levels of ability;
  • Should receive early intervention and access to appropriate assessment; and
  • Benefit from families and staff working together.

    See our Parent Information Booklet (pdf 661 KB) and DoE Early Intervention web page for more information.
