Uniquely tailored to each young learner

At Tiny Town we provide quality, age-appropriate play-based educational programs underpinned by Christian values. Our curriculum incorporates the Australian Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for Pre-Kindy children (2 to 3½ years), and the QLD Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines for the Kindergarten Program.

We currently have vacancies for 2019, so call us on 3355 9465 to discuss your child’s enrolment.

Belonging, Being & Becoming

The concepts of belonging, being and becoming are fundamental to EYLF and are integral to our program which is delivered by qualified educators.

We ensure children are:

  • Encouraged to develop meaningful relationships with others (Belonging)
  • Accepted for who they are (Being)
  • Provided with experiences to develop the mind, body and spirit (Becoming)

Our programs are play-based to enable children to organise and make sense of their world, as they actively engage with people, activities and experiences that are appropriate and meaningful to them.

We support mutual respect and an open exchange of information between parents, staff and management. By sharing information we can work together to provide an environment that strengthens and supports children’s growth and learning.

Families are encouraged to participate, and contribute their ideas, experience and insights.

Our programs are designed to:

  • Provide flexible child-centred programs of excellence that support the development of the whole child and provide experiences for different learning styles.
  • Leverage the importance of play – especially child-initiated play – that offers children opportunities for discovery and inquiry, fosters a positive disposition for learning and consolidates skills in key learning areas.
  • Respond to the interests and needs of the children.
  • Foster children’s social interactions, as relationships are an important part of their learning. To this end, we use reassurance and encouragement to strengthen and build children’s sense of social, emotional and spiritual well-being, to understand and respect the rights and feelings of others and to develop an understanding of kindness and empathy.
  • For our Kindergarten children, develop skills to equip them for the transition to school.

Very High Standards

Our Educational Program and Practices have been independently assessed by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) as exceeding the required national standards. This gives parents peace of mind that their children are getting quality early learning education at Tiny Town.
