At Fairbairn Rd Kindergarten we believe that all children should be treated as unique individuals and nurtured to promote their overall well-being. The teachers proved a planned program, which caters for the children’s age and interests, and provides a positive environment to promote active learning and development through play.
This belief is supported by the BELONGING, BEING, and BECOMING framework.
There are 5 learning outcomes under the title of Being, Belonging and Becoming and they are:
1. Children have a strong sense of identity
2. Children are connected with and contribute to their world
3. Children have a strong sense of well being
4. Children are confident and involved learners
5. Children are effective communicators
We acknowledge the importance of ongoing learning and creative expression, and believe a child’s potential is supported by an engaging environment that includes play, exploration, expressing thoughts & ideas, practicing skills, problem solving, promoting independence, role modeling, routines, security and social interactions.
The program is designed to meet the needs of all children, both developmentally and educationally, across all areas of development – physically, socially, emotionally, intellectually and creatively. The program also aims to help children develop and process information about themselves and their environment.
