Our Child-First Curriculum

Our Child-First Curriculum is child centred, and takes a ‘hands on’ approach, with educators who create an environment and experiences which are stimulating, safe, nurturing and fun.

We draw upon the the Reggio Emilia approach and the children spend a lot of time outdoors engaging and learning through unstructured play with what many regard as the third teacher: the environment. 

Children who attend our Centre participate in a range of activities that have been planned to meet their developmental needs.

Reflecting the philosophy and goals of the centre our educators are responsible for creating an atmosphere and environment which is responsive to the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and additional needs of each individual child and to the group as a whole.

We have implemented Australia’s first national Early Years Learning Framework for early childhood educators.

The aim of the curriculum is to extend and enrich children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transition to school.

The Council of Australian Governments 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. In this way, the Early Years Learning Framework (the Framework) will contribute to realising the
Council of Australian Governments’ vision that: “All children have the best start in life to create a better future for themselves and for the nation.”


Join us as we provide our children with a core foundation that will guide them through life towards becoming active members of the community and stewards of the future. Benefit from being a part of the wonderful family at Little Learners EDEC and become a cherished member of our inclusive family.
