Our curriculum and environments are inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early education. In addition, our learning programs are developed in line with Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework’s (VEYLDF) guidelines and recommendations.
At Explorers, we’re dedicated to exceeding the criteria of this framework and the National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). Each room runs an educational program that is tailored to meet the needs of both the children’s interests, strengths and developmental levels.
Explorers also offer a Kindergarten program for three- and four-year-old children, taught by bachelor qualified Early Childhood Teachers.Book a Tour
Explorers offers a Kindergarten program for three- and four-year-olds.
Our play-based program offers a holistic approach to early learning, with a curriculum that focuses on developing essential skills in literacy, numeracy, social skills, and emotional intelligence to ensure a smooth transition to school.
Our Kindergarten programs are led by bachelor qualified Early Childhood Teachers who provide individualised support to children, building on their strengths and interests to foster a lifelong love of learning.
At Explorers, our Educators create intentional learning experiences in both indoor and outdoor environments to encourage children to learn through play.
These experiences are designed to promote children's development in a variety of areas, including maths and literacy concepts, independence and responsibility, culture and community, physical wellbeing, nature and environment, science and discovery, creative expression, sensory play, communication and social skills, and imaginative and dramatic play.
Each room is set up with specific learning experiences to support these areas of development, using open-ended resources and provocations to extend children's learning.
To ensure that we capture every child's learning journey, we maintain portfolios that document individual and small group experiences.
These portfolios are updated regularly by Educators and can be accessed by families at any time. This allows families to see their child's progress, interests, and achievements, and collaborate with Educators to support their child's development.
