The Early Years Learning Framework guides curriculum decision making for Renown Kindergarten and enables each child’s learning in the five 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.
The Curriculum decision making at Renown is informed by the context, setting and cultural diversity of our families and our community. The program at Renown Kindergarten for each child takes into account their strengths, capabilities, culture, interests and experiences. Each child’s current knowledge, ideas, culture and interests provide the foundation for the program. Every child is supported to participate in the program. Each child’s learning and development is assessed as part of an ongoing cycle of planning, documenting and evaluating children’s learning. Critical reflection and evaluation of children’s learning and development, both as individuals and in groups, is used as a primary source of information for planning and to improve the effectiveness of the program and teaching strategies.
Relevant information about the program and your child’s participation in the program is shared with you on a regular basis in our daily reflection books, your child’s portfolio, photographs and documentation of your child’s work and learning.
