NATIONAL QUALITY STANDARDS 2018
All of our services are designed to help early childhood learning and care centres to exceed their new National Quality Standard 2018 requirements in a number of areas.
Our curriculum is designed to be child-centric, determining what children already know about the subject and building on that knowledge, in a fun, play based manner. We seek to maximise each child’s learning by extending the experience into the home, providing support materials including discussion cards to enable parents and carers to have conversations with the children about what they have learnt and done. The Littlest Leaf respects the diverse home environments of children and prior to any incursion will work with staff to determine any special language requirements or literacy issues regarding family discussion cards and other support material.
Our Installation Programs enhance centres’ indoor and outdoor natural environments, providing spaces that support exploration and play based learning. These Programs and our Incursions aid children in becoming more environmentally responsible while embedding sustainability elements into a centre’s daily operations .
We design each of our engagements to demonstrate all three themes of the National Quality Framework required to achieve an Exceeding National Quality Standard 2018 rating:
