This framework is divided into 5 specific learning outcomes which are as follows:
Outcome 1: Children have a strong sense of identity
Outcome 2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world
Outcome 3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners
Outcome 5: Children are effective communicators
These outcomes are broad and acknowledge that children learn in a variety of ways and vary in their capabilities and will ultimately learn at their own pace. The programs are planned to provide a balance between indoor and outdoor activities, active and passive participation, large and small group involvement, large and small muscle development, and Teacher directed versus child initiated activities.
Each Child’s individual learning in relation to the five key areas is influenced by the child’s current capabilities, dispositions and learning preferences.
Children’s learning is ongoing and each child will progress towards the outcomes in different and equally meaningful ways.
Your child’s learning journey at Carabella is documented through an online program called Kinderloop.
Kinderloop is a secure internet based program that provides the carers at Carabella an opportunity to share information with your family through real-time updates of photos and information about what the children learn each day as both an individual and within a group.
The benefits of Kinderloop include:
We work to provide a warm, safe, caring, stimulating environment that meets all developmental needs.
Educators in the Toddler room will plan, implement and evaluate activities for your child.
Each child is allocated a focus teacher who will observe, plan and program for their individual needs
At Carabella Early Learning we believe that consistent, qualified and experienced educators in adequate numbers provide better outcomes for children through quality interactions and positive experiences. Carabella Early Learning is currently home to 24 amazing members of staff who all come from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds.
Over 50% of Carabella Early Learning’s staff are Diploma trained and we have 3 Early Childhood Teachers on premises. All our staff are dedicated to applying the Early Years Learning Framework, National Quality Framework and Early Childhood Australia’s Code of Ethics to create a warm, safe, secure environment which encourages the natural curiosity in each child to flourish.
We believe professional development is part of our ongoing learning and enables belonging, being and becoming in educators. Continual learning comes from children, researchers, other professionals, in-service courses, publications and within our own community.
We believe in collaboration, care, consideration and a shared workload. This means that everyone, regardless of qualification brings diverse perspectives, contributions, common goals and are not exempt from any task in the centre.
