Riverton Primary Campus –  Early Childhood Unit

The Early Years Learning Framework places the individual child at the centre of our core

business and emphasises the power of play-based learning. We know that children learn

more in the first four–five years than at any other time in their lives, so by the time they enter

kindergarten they are learning experts. This learning framework is based on beliefs about young children and their learning is inherent in these beliefs of Belonging, Being and Becoming.  The values of The Early Years Learning Framework underpin our practice:

  • ƒ Respectful relationships
  • ƒ Partnerships with families
  • ƒ High expectations and equity
  • ƒ Respect for diversity
  • ƒ Reflective practice

At Riverton Primary Campus we understand that children learn best when the activity is interesting and has meaning for them personally. Our program is fully inclusive and supports the interests and needs of individual children through a play-based learning approach; it maximises adult interaction with children, enabling meaningful observations that inform future learning focuses and also reflects our high expectations for children’s individual achievement
