Our Education Program

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". -Nelson Mandela

The Early Years Learning Framework​

East Hills Child Care Centre implement the Early Years Learning Framework into the educational program. The Early Years Learning Framework consists of: 

Outcome 1: Children have a strong sense of identity

Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world

Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners

Outcome 5: Children are effective communicators

The children are free to choose the areas of interest in which they will participate throughout the day, both as individuals and as part of a group. We cover all developmental areas such as; physical (fine/gross motor), social, emotional, cognitive and language. It is believed that children learn self discipline by being able to choose their own play activities. Sharing and co-operating with other children is encouraged by the educators.  Fun and Educational activities are provided everyday including: painting, pasting, playdough, puzzles, blocks, construction equipment, music, story telling, book reading, gardening, sand play, water play and other outdoor activities.

 

The centre prides itself on providing an environmentally friendly and sustainable environment for the children. The children take part in recycling, growing their own fruit, vegetables and herbs and gardening experiences.
