Carey Street Kindergarten

At Carey Street Kindergarten our curriculum is inspired by:

  • The Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Childhood
  • European Forrest Schools
  • The National Early Years Learning Framework
  • The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework

These frameworks define curriculum as everything that occurs during a day. Thus it is:

  • Interactions
  • Routines
  • Events – planned and unplanned
