Teacher with the Pre-School ChildrenThe Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF)

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) has been developed to ensure your child receives quality education programs in their early childhood setting. The EYLF supports the development of learning programs that are responsive to children's ideas, interests, strengths and abilities, and recognizes that play is at the heart of children's learning.

At Gowrie we believe in in fostering relationships with families and community and in creating safe learning environments that inspire and spark enthusiasm in children. We know we are an important part of the school community and we thrive in working as a team to plan for the preschool program. We believe in respecting children’s individuality and valuing their growth. Most importantly we believe in happiness, the sound of laughter and having fun together.
