Our approach to curriculum

Learning and life is a journey, not a destination. So we believe in supporting all children to succeed in that journey, at their own pace and in their own unique way.
Nature connections

Did you know regular connections with nature help to reduce stress, enhance learning, physical and mental health.

We do! That's why nature connections are a part of our DNA at KRCC.

The Early Years Learning Framework

We run our programs in accordance with the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and the National Quality Framework for Australia.

play based learning

"Play is the work of children" - Maria Montessori.  Find out why play based learning is so much more effective at preparing children for life (and school) than 'chalk and talk' instruction.

National Quality Standard

Kinglake Ranges Children's Centre is rated as 'Meeting' the National Quality Standard (last assessment November 2016).

Behaviour guidance

Everyone has the capability to manage their own behaviour - even children.  We believe in guiding children towards managing their own behaviour - not managing it for them.  This is a key life skill and an important success indicator


We use Storypark as our online planning and learning documentation platform.
