Goals and Objectives

Program Goals and Objectives

How your child will develop

Our goals and objectives encompass a framework that has five significant goals that will assist your child to develop:

  • a strong sense of identity
  • connections with their world
  • a strong sense of wellbeing
  • a confident and involvement in their learning
  • effective communication

As educators we will guide your child’s play by listening, watching and designing learning experiences in relaxed, natural learning spaces.

Group Program Objectives

The group program objectives are developed in consideration of the required legal documents / framework, our preschool philosophy, educational theorists, parents and consulting children.

They form the basis of planning for daily group / individual experiences and the learning environment. You will find a direct relationship between the group / individual objectives and the presentation of the various learning spaces throughout the preschool environment.

The early years learning framework

The framework forms the foundation for ensuring that children in all early childhood education and care settings experience quality teaching and learning.

It has a specific emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.

The framework has been designed for use by early childhood educators working in partnership with families, children’s first and most influential educators.

Through play children develop a positive sense of self and values, knowledge and skills to lay foundations for the next phase of their lives.

Fundamentally play provides children with a secure sense of belonging and gives them the freedom and the confidence to be uniquely themselves in the present and shapes who they can become.

Play is the heart of our philosophy. Children’s interests and emerging ideas are the foundation of our play-based learning and its assessment.

The Framework

The Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school.

The Framework puts children’s learning at the core and comprises three inter-related elements: Principles, Practice and Learning Outcomes.

All three elements are fundamental to early childhood pedagogy and curriculum decision-making. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning Outcomes:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators

The Framework supports a model of curriculum decision-making as an ongoing cycle. This involves educators drawing on their professional knowledge, including their in-depth knowledge of each child.
