How we bring our philosophy and National Quality Frameworks to life…

Every service has a Curriculum Leader to coach and mentor Educators in developing high quality educational programs. Our Curriculum Leaders hold a Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care or higher and our Director of Education and Quality, ensures that we develop and evolve the best experiences and projects across our network of Early Schools.

In addition to taking inspiration from the Reggio Emilia Approach every Nido Early School follows the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the National Quality Standard. The Framework describes the principles and outcomes that support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school.

The Framework draws on conclusive international evidence that early childhood is a vital period in children’s learning and development. It has a specific emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.

Nido not only adheres to this framework, but we are constantly seeking ways to improve our programs to ensure we deliver a quality of education that exceeds the standards and sets a benchmark for the industry.

For more information on EYLF, please visit the Department Of Education website.

Alternatively, to discuss how this curriculum is incorporated on a daily basis at Nido, our team at each Early School would be happy to provide further information.

Children with special rights

The right environment is crucial to a child’s physical and emotional wellbeing. If your child has been diagnosed with special rights, we will develop a plan, in conjunction with local agencies, to support your child’s inclusion in our Early School setting in the best way possible.

Before starting with us, we will discuss any special rights, including cultural ones, to ensure every need is catered for, to provide the best possible individual care.
