BABIES ROOM

6 weeks - 2 Years

Integral to the EYLF are the five principles that underpin practice to assist all children in making progress in relation to the Learning Outcomes:

Secure, Respectful and Reciprocal Relationships: Babies’ first attachments provide them with a secure base for exploration and learning. Through a widening network of secure relationships, children develop confidence and feel respected and valued.

Partnerships: Educators create a welcoming environment for the babies and families are respected and encouraged to collaborate with educators in order to ensure that experiences are meaningful to the individual child.

High Expectations and Equity: Early childhood educators challenge practices that contribute to inequities and make decisions that promote inclusion and participation of all children. 

Respect For Diversity: Our educators recognise that diversity contributes to the richness of our society. In Australia it also includes promoting greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being. We welcome all babies and all families, and celebrate in our diversity.

Ongoing Learning and Reflective Practice: Early childhood educators examine what happens in their settings and reflect on what they might change. Our babies room has evolved over the years to become a home-away-from-home, yet we continue to reflect and make changes.

Our babies room is designed to feel like a home away from home. Our babies are encouraged to explore their indoor and outdoor environment  through their senses. Our program is guided by the children's cultures, languages, interests and emerging development.

We strive to create a sense of belonging for our children and families and follow the routines families have set at home for their children or support them in establishing one.

Because children need to feel safe and secure in order to thrive, our educators support our babies in a holistic manner, including guiding them in their social and emotional development.
