Bangalow Community Children's Centre

Our Programs

Our Service provides a child centered developmental program that is guided by principles of the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) - Being, Becoming Belonging (DEEWR, 2009). The EYLF is the curriculum framework that informs early childhood education nationally and guides educators teaching practices and decision making . Educators develop the program based on children's emerging interests and ideas to ensure the learning environment is engaging and relevant and through an ongoing planning process based on observation, evaluation and follow up which supports children to develop skills across all developmental areas.

Each child will be guided to develop at an individual pace according to his or her unique individual way.

Curriculums are continually evaluated to ensure they meet the needs of all children and that the experiences offered promote:

Program and Child Development Records

Educators develop portfolios of children's progress which document the child's ongoing growth and learning throughout the year. These include photographs, observations and examples of children's artwork. From these portfolios, the educators are able to plan and develop experiences and environments based on their specific interests and emerging skills and set learning goals.

Educators and families work in partnership to plan the best environment possible for the children. We welcome your involvement in this. You are invited to discuss your child's progress with educators regularly throughout the year, both formally through arranged interviews and informally though day to day interactions.
All recorded information is kept confidential.
