Love Live Learn
Our mission statement is structured around the Early Years Learning Framework. We believe that children are all capable and resourceful and bring their own wealth of knowledge and experiences with them to our service. Our Educators work together with families to co-construct learning experiences that will extend the children's ideas and understandings and to build meaningful relationships.
South West Rocks Preschool's concept of Love, Live and Learn are based on the three concepts of the Early Years Learning Framework - Belonging, Being and Becoming. These are three interwoven ideas about the lives of children, their families and communities.
Belonging is about knowing who you are and where you belong. Having a secure sense of belonging is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel that they belong because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and place. (EYLF Information for Families).
Being is about enjoying the present and being accepted for being who you are, supported to meet challenges. Children need time just to be - time to play, try new things and have fun. (EYLF Information for Families).
Becoming is about how children change and grow and learn to participate fully and actively in society. Children start to form their identity from an early age which shapes the type of adult they will become. (EYLF Information for Families).
