Curriculum 3-5

Preschoolers enjoy being involved in tasks and activities that extend over several days, providing the opportunity to explore them in greater depth (EYFS).

Our flexible time arrangement allows children to concentrate for a longer period of time, exploring, repeating and investigating situations until their curiosity is satisfied.

Our thoroughly planned programs include a variety of activities such as music, art, scientific observation and experimentation, pre-literacy, reading and writing, foreign language, pretend play, yoga, and physical play. Children can choose what they want to do, how to play – alone or with friends- and more importantly, spend as much time as they wish to become engrossed in what they are doing.

This approach in conjunction with a calm atmosphere in the setting, result in a significant improvement on cognitive function, better social skills, high level of self-assertion and a decrease in instances of negative behavior.

Curriculum 2-3

Toddlers are curious about the people and environment around them. They learn through exploring, experimenting and educator’s prompt respond.

Our educators respect and respond to children’s cues and interests, reinforces developments through music time, scene plays, short stories reading  time. Each day our small group time allows young child to make connections, it’s an effective way of learning since individual’s activities are more focused.

We work to foster their interpersonal skills such as listening, learning how to treat one another, developing empathy, emotion management typically in dealing with frustration, problem solving techniques and manners. This all contributes to toddlers becoming confident learners.

As toddlers strive for independence, our programs assist children to grow in their autonomy and independence.

Curriculum 0-2

Babies experienced rapid growth and development in their first 2 years.

Routines such as feeding, resting, daily reading and outdoor discovery in infant’s area are significant elements of the daily program. These experiences offer positive opportunities for developing a love of learning and inspire motor, sensory development and social engagement.

We’re here to provide a supportive, enriching and multi sensory environment to help infants establish a strong sense of safety, belonging, confidence and building a solid foundation for future learning.

As infant development progresses, additional learning outcomes are expected such as self-feeding, expressing their needs using hand signs and hand-eye coordination.

Our Curriculum

Our play-based curriculum is guided by the Australian Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), to ensure that every individual child enjoys education and reaches their full potential.  We aim to provide an exciting, varied and fun curriculum which responds to the children’s needs and interests.

Belonging

is knowing where they belong and who they belong with. Children belong first to a family, a cultural, a neighborhood then a wider community. Children feel belong when they form relationships and connections within  these groups, which builds a solid foundation in defining who they can become.

Becoming

indicates that early year learning shapes and reshapes children’s identity, interests, skills, capacity and relationship, and eventually making them the kind of adult they will become.

Being

emphasizes living in present. Childhood is the critical path leads to the future. More importantly, it’s an invaluable period when children are entitled to play, to explore, to challenge, to build meaningful relationships and to get rewarded.

EYLF focus on how educators in partnership with families and communities to support children to grow and learn naturally. Little Genius Cottage facilitates learning programs to ensure each child to achieve the EYLF’s five learning outcomes.
