At Living Faith Lutheran Kindergarten we embrace a wide range of perspectives and understandings. We are strongly based in a play based learning environment where children are co-creators of their learning journeys. We support their developing of questions and help them seek solutions and encourage them to experiment and problem solve. We encourage children develop a cooperative culture that supports taking risks and expressing ideas.
The program is derived from observations and interests of each child. The programs are open and flexible as children explore their world, and grow more and more capable and confident in their own abilities. The design and presentation of the program endeavors to develop the child’s independence and physical growth. Social skills, intellectual skills, the ability to focus and concentrate and the emotional developmental needs of every child are emphasized throughout the programming and planning process.
Services covered by the National Quality Framework have been assessed and rated against the seven Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. The assessment and rating process aims to drive continuous quality improvement for services and provide families with better information for making choices about their children’s education and care. The overall rating for a service is determined by the combination of the ratings achieved in each Quality Area.
Each state and territory Regulatory Authority undertakes the assessment and rating process. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, ACECQA, is responsible for ensuring consistency in assessment and ratings across Australia, assessing services for the Excellent rating and creating awareness in the sector and community about the assessment and rating process.
