Kindergarten Curriculum

The Kindergarten Curriculum Guidelines draw on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF, Commonwealth of Australia, 2009) to focus on the Kindergarten year in Western Australia. The curriculum is centred on the belonging, being and becoming. At Ocean Reef much of the curriculum is taught through intentional play.

At Ocean Reef much of the curriculum is taught through intentional play. Intentional play differs from free play as the teacher has set up learning activities with a specific learning goal in mind. Sometimes these activities can take place during in the classroom or at recess and lunchtime. The intentional play aim is to develop your child’s social and emotional, cognitive, physical and creative learning, as well as more traditional academic areas.
