Educators aim to create positive learning environments and guide experiences for each child in conjunction with their family. Educators will observe children and facilitate their learning to provide each child with an individualised portfolio by documenting their learning throughout the year. Children and their families will be encouraged to participate in the ongoing process to promote engaged learning.
Our service is committed to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
Observations of all children enrolled in our service will be documented and kept for future reference and reflection, through use of electronic portfolios. Portfolios will be added to regularly and reflected upon by educators to ensure programming for each child remains relevant to their interests and developmental stage.
When your child is enrolled with us, a profile will be created for them on StoryPark and a link will be sent to your nominated email address for you to create a login. You will be able to view your child’s portfolio from home or on your mobile device.
Educators will upload a ‘day book’ for each room, which will include photos and a summary of the day for families to view.
The management team at Garfield will send notifications and announcements via StoryPark also, and families are encouraged to login and contribute to conversations with educators.
