Our program follows The Victorian Early Years and Learning Development Framework (VEYLDF).

"Play-based learning is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they actively engage with people, objects and representations."

Our curriculum supports children to achieve the five Learning and Development Outcomes- Identity, Community, Wellbeing, Learning, Communication

We provide a play-based learning program that is designed to encourage curiosity and creativity

Children will learn to think, inquire, discover, and solve problems in a safe, playful and inclusive learning environment

Our curriculum is designed to support kinder and school readiness by equipping children with the essential skills they need to transition to school.

Incursions and Excursions

Planned incursions are organised throughout the year to enhance the educational programs and increase learning objectives.  These may include, but are not limited to: Farm Animal visit, Australian Reptiles show, Rabbit / Chicken Life Cycle Program, How to approach dogs, Road Safety … to name just a few.

AWELC engages external providers to run both a dedicated Sports and a Music Program across the year.

Children will experience learning opportunities outside the Centre as well, such as going to the local playground, exploring the local neighbourhood and the surrounding parkland. Family members are encouraged to volunteer on excursions – the more the merrier!
