ELIZABETH PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL

Curriculum

At Elizabeth Park Preschool we offer a high quality learning program. Using the Early Years Learning Framework, Being, Belonging and Becoming as a guide, we program using the framework’s stated principles and practices. Educators reflect and discuss every child every day and program weekly, ensuring that all activities are child centred, focused on individual children’s needs and provide challenges and stimulation for children of all skill levels. We strongly value the voice of our children within our program and therefore run an emergent curriculum which follows children’s ideas and interests. This ensures that children have a strong voice in the running of our learning program.

Elizabeth Park Preschool

At Elizabeth Park Preschool, we offer a high quality learning environment that is built on the strong foundations of nurturing relationships between children, educators, families and the community. Our preschool is a place of learning which is child focused, emergent and based around the thoughts and ideas of the children who attend. We run a play based curriculum which is nature inspired and which enables children to learn, explore, socialise and risk take in a safe and loving environment.
We acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and we recognise their connection with the land. We will help care for and respect this land together.
