Our Programme

At the core of our program is the Early Years Learning Framework- Belonging, Being and Becoming; and its Learning outcomes

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators.

At Aurora Children’s Cottage we seek to nurture the development of each child by providing opportunities for imaginative play, meaningful purposeful work, and experiences in the arts, in nature and in the community. Staff plan activities and challenges throughout the week that relate to themes in the classroom, including seasons, current events, children's interests and cultural celebrations.

We believe that children develop both as individuals and as part of a community. We recognise the Childs family as their primary carers and teachers, and aspire to work co-operatively with them. We see children as Capable, Creative and Kind; Resilient and Resourceful and we encourage them to develop these qualities and to strive for independence. We understand the importance of free play throughout childhood and its role in early learning and in developing a love of learning in later years. We value the home environment as a secure environment for the holistic development of children during early childhood.
