Family Day Care Curriculum

Lady Gowrie Tasmania Family Day Care curriculum for children from birth to five years of age is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).The Framework‘s vision is for all children to
experience play-based learning that is engaging and builds success for life. Family Day Care educators use the framework in partnership with families – children’s first and most influential
educators – to develop learning programs responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths and abilities, and recognise that children learn through play. Planned play based experiences are also influenced by current and emerging early childhood research. Through the EYLF five learning goals, the curriculum provides children with the opportunities to develop:

  • A strong sense of their identity
  • Connections with their world
  • A strong sense of wellbeing
  • Confidence and involvement in their learning; and
  • Effective communication skills.

Family Day Care Outside School Hours Holiday Care

Family Day Care educators offer education and care before and after school during school terms and during school holiday periods for children from 4 to 12 years of age.
