Curriculum

Yeladim Early Learning Centre curriculum encompasses age & stage appropriate learning involving all areas of children’s development such as physical, social, and academic education. We aim to foster creativity, encourage participation in activities, and promote interaction for a unique learning experience. Our mission is to ensure that every child attending Yeladim Early Learning Centre is encouraged to reach their full potential during their time with us. Our Preschool Program fosters the development of each child as we embrace a holistic approach to learning. The day is divided between indoor and outdoor play where the children fulfill their curiosity as they explore and discover the world around them.

Our Readiness Program develops children’s confidence and knowledge of the basic concepts necessary to start Kindergarten with a head start.

This program focuses on the foundational literacy and numeracy skills that are identified in the Australian Curriculum. Each child is assessed to ensure an accurate program is developed for their specific learning needs. Throughout the year, our Preschool Program also provides meaningful experiences derived from children’s interests via intentional teaching and inventive teaching strategies. These experiences cover a wide range of subjects & topics.
