The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Frame Work (For Children from Birth to 8 Years) uses 5 outcomes to describe the key elements of children’s learning and development. These are:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world-community
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators

At Kids Own will be using these elements when programming for the children’s development.
KIDS OWN EARLY LEARNING CENTRE has developed planning and evaluation practices that are a combination of various theories, which reflect values about how children play, learn and develop.
Individual developmental needs

  • Individual needs are important factors when staff/carers gather information about children’s development and interests, which assists in planning children’s experiences.
  • Through observations information about children’s individual needs and interests are gathered on a daily basis.

We will also take into consideration; Group needs, Knowledge of children’s development, Knowledge of children, Gathering information, parents suggestions and feedback.

  • The children’s development is influenced by various factors such as relationships, family backgrounds, lifestyles, interests, language, culture and community. Parental input is a vital part in planning for each child’s needs and interest as the centre strongly believes, that parents provide the primary source of education which starts at home.
Observing children, Provision of the program, evaluating documentation.
