Our learning frameworks


We use three learning frameworks all specifically designed for specific age groups. These frameworks guide our practices and teaching with the aim of extending and enriching your child's learning from birth through to their transition to school. We are committed to achieving best practice and pursuing excellence in early education and care through continual evaluation, monitoring and reflection of our daily practices, policies and procedures.


The Early Years Learning Framework
(Early Childhood)

The Early Years Learning Framework draws on robust Australian and international evidence that confirms early childhood is a vital period in children’s continuing learning, development and wellbeing. It has been developed with considerable input from the early childhood sector, including children and families, approved providers and educators, other professionals, peak bodies, early childhood researchers, as well as the Australian and state and territory governments and the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority.

Qld Kindergarten Learning Guideline

The Qld Kindergarten Learning Guideline adopts the vision of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) that ‘all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life’. The principles of the QLD Kindergarten Learning framework include building a sense of security and trust, fostering independence and perseverance, developing a confident self-identity, promoting positive relationships and respect for diversity and environments, nurturing autonomy and wellbeing, cultivating positive dispositions towards learning, demonstrating confidence and involvement in learning, utilizing technologies for learning and communication, and exploring language, literacy, and numeracy in personally meaningful ways.

My Time Our Place
(Outside School Hours Care)

The My Time Our Place Framework provides broad direction for school age care educators in settings to facilitate children’s play, leisure and learning. School age children experience learning in a wide range of settings. Family, school and the community (including school age care settings) provide diverse opportunities for children to explore relationships and ideas, and build competence and skills. The diversity in family and community life means that school age children experience belonging, being and becoming in many different ways. They bring their diverse experiences, perspectives, expectations, knowledge and skills to their learning. The Framework puts children’s wellbeing and learning at the core and comprises three inter-related elements: Principles, Practice and Outcomes. All three elements are fundamental to pedagogy and program decision-making in school age care.
