Programs

programs3The curriculum here at Little Giggles Early Learning Centre is based on the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Framework.

 

We plan our experiences based on each child’s emerging interests and development. We also embrace community events within the centre, such as Australia Day, Harmony Day, NAIDOC week, Anzac Day, Christmas, to name a few, along with various other culturally significant days that are valued by our families.

 

We value our families input into the program and curriculum, and we encourage sharing of activities that have occurred with the family to incorporate into our programs.

The planning involves our dedicated educators observing, gathering and interpreting information about the children, in order to prepare experiences and environments that are engaging and meaningful to the children at our centre.

We use an online app to communicate each child’s learning and development back to the families and to show snapshots of the day here at Little Giggles.
