A stimulating and evolving curriculum to support development

We take particular pride in providing a quality educational start because research suggests that 90 per cent of a child’s brain development occurs by the time they turn five years of age.

When children move from DEDK to Foundation at primary school, they are properly prepared for the next phase of their educational journey.

We consider all children’s strengths, interests and capabilities when designing programs throughout our service because a child’s interest is an important springboard for learning. Their progress is regularly documented, evaluated and reflected upon to inform future planning for learning and teaching. 

The relationships between DEDK educators, families and the community play an important role in informing program development throughout the service and we proactively share children’s learning with families via ‘Educate’ within our HubHello platform. 

Also, throughout the year, we provide a variety of incursions and special learning experiences that your child will love! 

Education Frameworks

Our service and programs are guided by the principles and standards outlined in the following government documentation:

•    The National Quality Framework (NQF) provides a national approach to regulation, assessment and quality improvement for early childhood education and care and outside school hours care services across Australia

An important criterion listed in this document is that our educational program must be based upon an approved learning framework. The national framework document underpinning our educational practice is:

Belonging, Being and Becoming: The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) 

•    The Victorian document we also refer is:

The Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework 


Our ultimate goal is to provide a sound educational base for children to build upon once they reach primary school.
