Our educational philosophy at Early Birds Pre-Kindy is based on the principles, practices and outcomes of the National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). We believe in offering all children play based experiences and activities in a structured and nurturing environment. As outlined by the EYLF we aim to extend and enrich each individual child’s learning and development.
The role of the Teacher at Early Birds Pre-Kindy is to be a facilitator of children’s learning and development. Using children’s interests and needs the Teacher will scaffold the children to extend on their knowledge in accordance with the developmental domains of physical development, social development, emotional development, cognitive development, and Language/literacy development. The Teacher's program incorporates many different learning styles including collaborative group work, individual tasks and many types of hands on learning.
Our objective is that all children will feel safe, secure and part of our Pre-Kindy family, we believe once children have this strong sense of security they will be able to absorb information, create, invent, construct, dramatise, experiment, master new skills, problem solve, share knowledge and expand on curiosity. We believe the Pre-Kindy environment is helping to build a strong foundation for lifelong learning.

Early Birds Pre-Kindy would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land on which we gather, the Whadjuk Noongar people. We remember the children and families who lived, played and walked on this land. We would also like to pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
