Early Learning

The early years – from birth to age 8 – set the foundation for lifelong learning. Offering our children a wide range of quality experiences in the early years can help children become their best – physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.


Children are naturally curious and start learning from day one. Young children do much of their learning through play. To support optimum development and learning, families should provide plenty of fun, play-based experiences on a daily basis.


Early childhood educators, teachers and other service providers work closely with parents, family members and the community to help each child fulfil their potential. Review the teaching strategies, learning outcomes and program information designed for this role.
