Our Programs

altAt Shining Stars Childcare we have developed a program that aims to promote children’s love for life-long learning and also promote school readiness.

Each year we evaluate and reflect on all our programs including our school readiness program. . Our Curriculum is designed to meet the ELYF guidelines and to foster Children’s learning and development.

We have implemented the Early Learning Years Framework (ELYF). The Australian Government Council has developed this framework to assist educators to provide young children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success in learning. This framework aims to contribute to the Australian Governments vision that...

All children have the best start in life to create a better future for them and for the nation.

Child Centered Planning

alt

We believe children are active learners that learn at their own pace.

We believe children develop competency when they are in control of their environment, especially when activities are challenging to them.

It is important when planning the activities for children they are according to children’s interest and stage of development. When children are interested in an activity they will willingly take part.

Staff program to meeting the Learning outcomes as outlined in the Early Years Learning Framework. The program also includes follow up experiences from children’s interests, observations, projects etc

 

Events

Throughout the year we will plan for extra events to extend on the interests and learning of the children.

Some examples of these events: Visit from the dentist, Fire Brigade, Police, parent involvement, reptiles visit, excursion.

 

Parent Involvement

Each group has a different program to meet the needs of the different ages and stages of children.

All programs are displayed for parents to read allowing you to be informed about what your child has been involved in.

Our family diary allows us to connect with families and incorporated different ideas, celebrations into our program.

Key areas to our curriculum

The Environment
We believe in creating an aesthetically pleasing, stimulating and child focused environment that will allow each child to grow and build relationships.

We believe in creating a pleasant atmosphere for the children where they feel at home and competent in their learning environment.

We promote sustainable practices to foster respect and care for the Environment

 

The role of the Educator
The Educator's role is to set the scene.

The educators observe each child to understand their needs, strengths and interests. They use these observations to plan for daily experiences and activities.
