Curriculum

La Petite Early Learning Centre provides child-centred developmental programs.

Our curriculum is based on The Early Years Learning Framework which includes observing children on a regular basis through various mediums such as learning stories, scrapbooks, portfolios, photographic records, celebration of achievement charts and family input sheets. Our Educators continually evaluate the children's needs and interests by planning learning experiences that extend and scaffold the children's learning and development. Each child will be pace guided to develop at an individual level according to his or her unique abilities. La Petite Early Learning Centre's Curriculum is based on the following:-

Implementation of Programs/Routines:

 

Indoor and outdoor learning experiences are an integral part of our program and daily routine. Play is central to children's development by providing opportunities for both structured and spontaneous activities. Play is a child's unique way to learn about their world. It is also a means of expressing knowledge from previous experience.

We aim to provide opportunities for all children to play freely regardless of any stereotype roles they may choose. Videos will only be shown as part of the planned curriculum. Routines give children a sense of the passage of time as they move through the day. Routines encourage independence and an understanding of personal hygiene.
