We follow the Early Years Learning Framework for children from birth to 8 years here at Milestone. Educators have worked together to create a program that encourages freedom of choice, exploration and independence.
Educational programs are devised by room educators, in accordance with the interests of all children. All educators at the centre are involved in providing educational programs to provide multiple perspectives. We offer a variety of experiences and activities for all age groups, depending on each child’s current stage of development. Educators utilise observations formats to gain an understanding of each child’s interests, skills and knowledge. At the end of each program, educators will conduct an evaluation. Family input is encouraged frequently throughout this process.
Photos of the children and educators engaging in experiences are regularly shared with families and displayed around the centre to showcase what the children are currently interested in and what they are learning at the centre.
We believe play is how children learn and is necessary for the development of new skills. Through play, children will explore their independence, develop relationships, take risks and strengthen their self-esteem. All age groups follow an indoor/outdoor program where children can choose where they wish to play and explore.
All of the programs at the centre are based around the five Learning Outcomes:
- Children have a strong sense of identity
- Children are connected with and contribute to their world
- Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Children are confident and involved learners
- Children are effective communicators
