What are the key elements of the Early Years Learning Framework?

According to the EYLF, infancy is a time of belonging, being, and becoming:


Belonging is the foundation of a satisfying existence. Children experience a sense of belonging due to their relationships with their family, community, culture, and environment.


Being entails existing in the present moment. Childhood is a unique period of life, and children require time to simply ‘be’ – to play, attempt new things, and enjoy themselves.


Becoming focuses on the learning and development of preschool children. Children begin to develop their sense of self at a young age, which influences the type of adult they will become.

Our Early Years Learning Framework play based, child-centred curriculum

Pre School Program

Our preschool program is for 3-6 year olds and

Children’s Choice preschool program is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as capable, strong and resilient, rich with wonder and knowledge. Our pre school program expertly bridges a foundation between early childhood education and the first formal year of school. Within the program literacy and numeracy, experiences are both integrated into the units and taught explicitly. Skill-based learning activities are supported by topics such as spatial awareness, shapes, colours, reading a clock and simple addition.

The specialised delivery of phonics awareness education ensures that our children not only recognise the letters of the alphabet but are also familiar with their sounds and place in words, accelerating their reading and word recognition, a key benefit when commencing school. Interaction is also integral to our program. We make use of information and communications technologies, such as interactive smart boards and iPads, to enhance our children’s learning. The program also considers that children learn best through experiences of touching, moving, listening, seeing and hearing.

There are seven key areas that our preschool program focuses on to prepare your child for school:

Social: Taking turns, sharing, following rules, listening to group times

Emotional: Self-confident, shows empathy, separates easily

Physical: Runs, climbs, balances, well-coordinated, throws and catches a ball

Fine Motor: Draws, uses scissors, uses pincer grip, shows handedness

Language: Answers questions, maintains conversation, follows directions

Cognitive: Sorts, knows shapes, colours, can count, writes own name

Self-help: Toileting independently, looks after belongings, tidying up
