We base our curriculum on the learning outcomes of the NSW Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), for differing age groups transitioning from one stage to the next.
School Readiness at Long Day Care Baulkham Hills
The school readiness program begins within the 2-3 ½ years room with the focus on the children being able to separate from their families, attend at group times and self- regulate their own behaviour. This helps prepare the child socially as well as develop fine motor and cognitive skills. We work with each child to develop these important skills in order to fully prepare children for school entry.
The Hills Long Day Preschool is a program that encourages children’s choices and individual creativity to develop at their own pace in a loving, secure, safe, friendly environment that is child orientated and is controlled by caring, competent adults.
Hills Long Day Preschool have always employed more qualified staff than the regulations demand in order to provide the high level of care, and provide a loving, caring and educational atmosphere.
