Programs planned by our educators allow children to naturally develop and have the opportunity to guide their own learning"
The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)
The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is a national framework for children from birth to 5 years. As the early years are a vital time for children to learn and develop, the framework has been developed to ensure your child receives a quality educational program.
At Kensington Kindy, our educators use the framework in partnership with families to develop learning programs responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities and recognise that children learn through their play.
Belonging, Being and Becoming
Early Years Learning Framework describes childhood as a time of Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Belonging is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place.
Being is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just ‘BE’ Time to play, try new things and have fun.
Becoming is about the learning and development that young children experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from a really early age which the type of the adult they will become.
Pre-Kindy - Ages 1-3 years
Curious Pre-Kindy aged 1-3 years develop their most important skills by playing and experimenting. Throughout this stage of life your child will begin to understand peer relations, turn taking, seperation and so much more. They will become increasingly independent and aware of their abilities.
We ensure that your child can develop their new found independance in a safe, stress free manner.

Kindy - Ages 3-5 years
Between the ages of 3 and 5 children develop a real understanding of who they are and what they want.
Articulating needs becomes a main focus and the need to learn as much as possible is also enhanced.
Our Kindy children discuss what they would like to do each day with their morning group time, and they enjoy these as well as programmed activities that enhance their abilities. They begin to form close friendships, understand concepts of empathy and emotions.
Our children are full of energy and want to learn, which is why we design our programs around their interests and abilities. We ensure that your child is cofident and ready to head toward their next big challenge - School.
While our Kindy program is still child initiated play, it is a little more structured and focuses on:
+ Letter and word recognition
+ Sentence structure through play
+ Puppets and felt boards
+ Cooking following diagram recipes
