Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)
The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) describes childhood as a time of Belonging, Being and Becoming.
Is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships which they develop with their parents, family, community and important places such as their Long Day Care Centre. Culture also plays an important part in a child’s belonging.
Is about living in the here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to be themselves, to play, explore, and try new things and most importantly to have fun.
Is about learning and development that children need to experience. Children start to form their sense of identity at an early age which shapes their characteristics and behaviour as they move into adolescence and adulthood.
At Fables On The Mountain we believe play is a very important key concept in every child’s development. Through play, babies and toddlers can explore, learn and understand the environment around them as they begin to communicate, discover, imagine and create. It has been well established that when children play they display what they have learned.
It is well known that children learn best when they have secure relationships with caring adults such as their parents, grandparents and educators. When children from a very early age develop trusting relationships they feel more confident and able to explore and learn. We believe when children feel emotionally secure, they learn through play to develop the skills and understandings which are required to interact positively with other children and gradually learn to take responsibility.
Our programs provide your child with experiences that nurture their physical health and wellbeing, social competence, emotional maturity, communication skills and general knowledge. Play will also help develop your child’s independence, decision making, problem solving and social skills.
