At Town and Country Children’s Centre we take a tailored and holistic approach to learning that focuses on the developmental needs and interests of each child.
We are guided by the Early Years Learning framework of Australia and our unique educational curriculum works on the theory of emergent and inquiry project-based learning. Our curriculum gives every child the opportunity to engage in meaningful and purposeful learning experiences that will help each child grow and evolve to their full potential.Town and Country follows the Early Years Learning Framework including the principles, practices and learning outcomes to ensure that the educational program and practice of educators are child-centric, stimulating and that they maximise opportunities for enhancing and extending each child’s learning and development.
Our curriculum includes a program that builds on children’s individual knowledge, strengths, ideas, culture, abilities and interests which is likely to have long term benefits for children and for the broader society. We are guided in the development of our curriculum by the National Quality Standard & Framework.
The National Quality Standard (NQS) sets a high national benchmark for early childhood education and care and outside school hours care services in Australia. The NQSF includes 7 quality areas that are important outcomes for children.
Our school readiness program aims to prepare your child for school and beyond by developing the foundational skills for formal learning prior to starting school. This is essential in developing capable and confident, lifelong learners. We also focus on emotional intelligence and core values that include: respect, kindness, empathy, perseverance, patience and courage, curiosity, resilience and a sense of agency as well as gratitude and inclusion.
A smooth transition to school for you and your child is important to us. At Town and Country, we believe that when children are confident, school will be a positive and rewarding experience for them.
As your child moves through their early years, the transition to formal schooling is one of their most significant milestones. Preparing your child for the transition to school and their future doesn’t just happen in the year before school, it happens from the day they are born. Through our contemporary early learning Curriculum, we scaffold children’s learning through a wide range of experiences that set them up for lifelong learning.
