Waves Early Learning Curriculum
Here at Waves, we feel that a meaningful, integrated, emergent curriculum using the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) as the framework is the most beneficial to children’s learning across all developmental domains. A curriculum in which children are active participants and collaborators allows for a more individualistic and meaningful involvement by the children.
We believe children are unique individuals who develop at their own rate, and thus by providing enriching, meaningful and realistic opportunities children will explore, create, discover and imagine. Our programs reflect planned and spontaneous experiences, follow through with children’s interest and are designed to support children’s development in all domains.
Through the EYLF, the program will see educators use intentional teaching, it is deliberate, purposeful and thoughtful. Educators who engage in intentional teaching recognise that learning occurs in social contexts and that, interactions and conversations are vitally important for learning. They actively promote children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that fosters high-level thinking skills. The educators play a pivotal role as co learner, facilitator and observer in an ongoing cyclic process of observing, planning, action, documentation, evaluation and reflection.
