Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The framework describes the principles, practices and outcomes essential to support and enhance young children's learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school. It has a strong emphasis on play-based learning, and recognizes the importance of communication and language and social and emotional development.

Belonging, Being and Becoming

The Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of belonging, being and becoming.

  • Belonging is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place.
  • Being is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just 'be'–time to play, try new things and have fun.
  • Becoming is about the learning and development that young children experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from an early age, which shapes the type of adult they will become.

Learning Goals

Through the curriculum our educators assist your child to develop:

  • A strong sense of identity
  • Connection with their world
  • A strong sense of wellbeing
  • Confidence and involvement in their learning
  • Effective communication skills

Learning Environments

Children's learning is fostered in environments that are stimulating, interesting and visually appealing. Our environments are constantly changing to reflect children's interests, their learning journeys and the curriculum.
Much of the information and resources displayed in the classroom environments is designed to engage children and to encourage them to question and make sense of their world. Careful attention is given to creating a space that is appropriate for the age and interests of the children in the group.
Children love seeing the artwork that they have created on display. They have pride in their eyes as they share their creations with family, friends and visitors to our Centre.

  • Painting easels

Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline

Our fully qualified preschool teachers educate your children under the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG). Our focus is to ensure that all Aussie Kids pre-schoolers will be school ready as our centre curriculum prepares your child in the following areas:

  • A child's social skills are a very important aspect of school readiness. Turn taking, sharing and participating in group classroom activities are an everyday occurrence within our preschool rooms.
  • We prepare children to be emotionally ready for school by getting children used to a classroom routine, encouraging children's self-help skills and assisting children to cope with change on a daily basis.
  • Our preschool curriculum ensures that your child is developmentally ready for school. Aussie Kids children participate in writing activities which encourages their pencil grip, letter formations and fine motor skills.
    Our preschool teachers will complete a ‘Transition Statement' for each child, which will be sent to your child's prep teacher to ensure that there is a high quality of continuity of learning and your child is supported in their learning environment.
