Did you know children's development before five years old is some of the most important times in a persons life?
Kidz Prints prides itself on its educational programs. We work closely with each individual child to ensure their developmental needs are met. Giving children opportunities to experience early childhood education gives them a huge advantage later in life.
We work with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This is a national curriculum that works on the individual child, discovering what skills a child already possesses and extending them through play, investigation, questioning and social learning.
In the EYLF there are 5 learning outcomes:
OUTCOME 1: CHILDREN HAVE A STRONG SENSE OF IDENTITY
