Mission

Our Philosophy

Little Stars Early Education Centre was formed on the lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the Traditional Custodians of this country and their connection to the land, water and community in which we operate. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs both past and present.

Educators work with integrity and trust, with children, families and each other. Educators are thoughtful and reflective, taking the time for themselves to recharge so their work practices are at their full potential. We recognise that educators are role models for the children and that they learn from us as examples. Educators demonstrate appropriate behaviour and communication, they are respectful, honest and work in a harmonious and calm manner.

All children will have an equal opportunity to learn and will be respected and not discriminated against no matter what gender, age, ability, economic status, family structure, ethnicity, lifestyle, religion, culture or language. We will educate children about differences between children, families and communities and help to promote positive self-esteem in all children. We will ensure families with additional needs are included and will offer any support, guidance and assistance needed. Little Stars Early Education Centre, We value the importance of play because it is through play that children have fun, enjoy themselves and are able to express and let their creative side out. Play is important as it allows children to make decisions in a world dominated by adults which results in a happy and confident child that has a positive self-image of oneself. Play is a way that children are able to learn and investigate the world and also further their development in a fun way, this provides the child with a sense of power.

Our Special Curriculum

At Little Stars Early Education Centre we believe our role is to help support and further develop children’s social, emotional, cognitive and social development by having an emergent curriculum. Emergent Curriculum is a curriculum in which our educators will use for planning and decision making, in relation to children’s interest, strengths and capabilities. Emergent curriculum provides meaningful interactions between child and educator and allows for an inquiry and play-based program.

Educators that work with and Emergent curriculum have the ability to further extend on children’s interests and knowledge and have access to extending experiences that will both challenge and inspire every child. By having a play-based emerging curriculum, Educators have the ability to observe the children within the environment of both indoor and outdoor, and build upon the children’s interest and inquiry and scaffold their learning. Educators plan for their learning through these observations and moments of intentional teaching.

Educators will use Learning stories, as a method of observation however, is not limited to. Other observations will be taken in groups as well as individual observations to gain a holistic view of your child. In accordance to our Curriculum it will also be inspired through the National Quality Framework (NQF), and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). These approved Frameworks do not advise how our educators plan; however they are used as a guide to use these key elements when making any decisions regarding the curriculum.
