Our Programming and Curriculum

Programming and Curriculum

At Busy Bees, we believe that early childhood education is the foundation of all learning.   Quality education programs in early childhood settings encompass play-based learning activities, stimulating environments, secure and trusting relationships, and qualified educators.

Busy Bees aim to create positive learning environments and guide experiences for each child in partnership with their family. Educators will observe children and facilitate their learning to provide each child with an individualized portfolio by documenting their learning throughout the year. Children and their families will be encouraged to participate in the ongoing process to promote engaged learning.

Belonging: is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place.

 

Being: is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in life and children need time to just ‘be’-time to play, try new things and have fun.

 

Becoming: is about the learning and development that young children experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from an early age, which shapes the type of adult they will become.

Busy Bees believe that children learn through exploring, communicating, experimenting and investigating. Everything in their lives is a potential curriculum for children. While implementing program under EYLF the children are engaged in a negotiated “emergent curriculum” where the educator involves the children in planning activities that are purposeful and meaningful to them.

Our programs are designed around working in collaboration with each family within our service. We believe that children do their best learning when families and educators support each other and work towards the common goals of providing a foundation for scaffolding children’s learning. In learning the ‘emergent’ way children love to learn because their delight and spontaneous wonder will always be a part of their learning processes.
