Programs and Curriculum
Our Educators recognise that children are unique and understand that children develop at a different pace. Based on this, an individual program is developed based on your child’s interests and abilities. Families will be encouraged to contribute to this program. All Education and Care programs will be developed in line with an approved Learning Framework.
The educational program will contribute to the following 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
Our Village Family Childcare offers seven playgroup sessions a week for our Educators to attend.
Sessions are held daily at Sunbury Community Heath.
Romsey sessions are held on Mondays and sessions are held in Craigieburn on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
