Implementing Our Curriculum

At Cribb Street Childcare, we are a Reggio Emilia-inspired Early Learning Centre. This approach is centred around collaborative learning, where the curriculum is co-constructed with children and through our family connections. Children are encouraged to develop independent thinking, reflection, problem-solving skills, and collaboration through discussion. Our outdoor program and natural play spaces offer opportunities for children to climb trees, make mud pies, and explore their environment!

Early Years Learning Framework

Our qualified Educators plan experiences which develop children's skills and interest in all developmental areas incorporating the Early Years Learning Framework and Queensland Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines embedding it with permaculture principles, practices and beliefs in a homely holistic Environment. These documents principles practices and beliefs are embedded to enhance the children's learning to the Federal Government's Framework of Belonging, Being and Becoming.

The Framework conveys the highest expectations for all children's learning from birth to five years and through the transitions to school. It communicates these expectations through the following five Learning Outcomes:

  • Children have a strong identity.
  • Children are well connected with and contribute to their world.
  • Children have a strong sense of well being.
  • Children are confident and involved learners.
  • Children are effective communicators.
