Our Preschool/Kindergarten program is for children aged 3 years to 5 years and is led by university degree-qualified Early Childhood Teachers.
How is the Early Years Learning Framework applied at Little Scribblers Early Learning Centres?
The Beyond Curriculum is the distinctive educational framework and foundation for essential early years learning and development at Little Scribblers Early Learning Centres. Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) “Belonging, Being, and Becoming” is central to The Beyond Curriculum. The EYLF informs the underlying principles and practices of The Beyond Curriculum and assists educators in designing a curriculum that is responsive to children’s ideas, interests, strengths, and abilities.
Education in an Early Childhood Education Setting?
At Little Scribblers Early Learning Centres, a concentration on left brain logic and right brain creativity is at the core of our approach to early learning, and we consider the social development, health, and wellbeing of each child in our care.
We believe that children learn best through play, so structured and unstructured learning are incorporated into every experience. With our play-based approach to education, every day is filled with consistent learning opportunities that are also enjoyable. Here you can learn more about our distinctive approach to early education.
Our two-year preschool and kindergarten school readiness programme encompasses each child’s health, social development, and total well-being. For this reason, we provide free School Readiness Vision Screenings for all children prior to the start of the school year.
The Importance of Vision Screening?
Children rarely complain of eye problems, which is often because they do not realise they cannot see well and therefore are unaware of the problem. Occasionally, a child may have exceptional vision in one eye while the other eye has poor vision. A vision exam will detect these conditions.
Vision problems in children that go undetected can cause school and daily life difficulties, so it is essential to have your child’s vision examined before they begin school. Typically, the sooner a vision problem is detected, the more effectively it can be treated.
The Process of Vision Screening?
Our qualified Orthoptist will conduct a thorough vision and ocular examination on your child that goes beyond the standard preschool distance vision examination. This evaluation includes:
- Visual acuity (single-eye examination of vision clarity)
- Ocular movements and binocular vision (the degree to which the eyes move and function together)
- Normal colour perception (colour perception aptitude)
- pupils and ocular appearance are evaluated
There are no eye drops used during examinations, and they are tailored to the individual capabilities of each child. Children who have not yet begun or mastered letter reading are given specialised assessments.
