Three and four year old children have endless curiosity, and are in the stage of their development that features fun and excitement. They learn best through hands-on, multi-sensory learning experiences. being3 supports their inquiring nature through a play-based educational program specifically designed to foster learning, imagination, social development, emotional resilience, independence and self-confidence.
Our Educators give great care and consideration to the learning environments, both indoor and outdoor, to inspire everyday encounters. Children have the opportunity to express themselves through a variety of creative and sensory experiences each day. Our learning environment and program draws from the best early childhood teaching theories and practices, and is designed to allow children the time and space to explore their world and deepen their own knowledge through play, inquiry and being supported by intentional teaching.
Our curriculum is developed from the children’s interests and is supported by the Early Years Learning Framework. The curriculum unfolds in an environment that has been developed as a natural play space, allowing opportunities for individual play, small group and larger group experiences.
Permanent Learning Centres are areas within the program that are available every day for the children during free play. Educators plan these centres and provide a variety of materials and equipment as well as opportunities for ongoing individual learning. Many of these learning centres are available indoors and outdoors, to allow for learning opportunities in all areas of the curriculum.
Literacy and numeracy are incorporated in to the play based program every day. The children are introduced to the foundation components of the alphabet and phonetic sounds through both spontaneous and intentional experiences that engage children in a multisensory way. Children have the opportunity to explore mathematical concepts such as number, shape, measurement, classifying and grouping on a daily basis through manipulative materials, games and songs.
The National Quality Framework (NQF) underpins all the curriculum decisions, practices and policies of being3, alongside the Early Years Learning Framework and the Early Childhood Australia Code of Ethics.
