The Importance of Play

We believe that children learn best through play. Children engage, interact and learn about their world through play whilst developing the physical, cognitive, social and emotional skills that promote wellbeing. In play children can be creative, take risks, negotiate, problem-solve and learn to engage with others, develop self-awareness and much, much more.

In the ELC, the Reggio Emilia approach and the tenets of Positive Education inspire the way we work with children and support the implementation of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). We are also guided by the national Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF).

Where each child is infinitely capable, creative and intelligent. The role of the teacher is to support these qualities and to partner in the learning process.
