Little Wonderland’s Child Care curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) which focuses on children from birth to five years in which the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Programs outlines guidelines aims to enrich the children’s learning experience in the Kindergarten Year – click here to view Our Kindergarten Program.

All of our educators understand and recognise the importance of the Early Years Learning Framework and implement the framework throughout the child’s play to discover and learn. The Early Years Learning Framework is essential to support and enhance young children’s learning which recognises the importance of language (including early literacy and numeracy) communication and social and emotional development.

The Early Years Learning Framework describes a vision of children’s learning, characterising them by;

  • Belonging: Recognising that knowing where and with whom you belong is integral to human existence, providing a basis for children’s interdependence and relationships with others
  • Being: Recognising and valuing the “here and now” in children’s lives, and viewing childhood as more than simply preparation for adulthood or for the future

Becoming: Recognising the rapid and significant learning and development that occurs in the early years, and the capability and potential of all children.
The National Early Years Learning Framework for children has been developed to ensure each individual child receives quality education programs in their early childhood setting to learn and develop.

The EYLF has a very strong emphasis on play-based learning as play is the best vehicle for young children’s learning which aids in providing the most appropriate stimulus for brain development. The Queensland Government is committed to securing a the best start for our future generations by delivering world-class education and training which is why we support these initaives by delivering best practice in a safe, clean and loving environment that encourages all young learners.
