Our Curriculum


Our Curriculum

The overall curriculum provided within Hippity Hop Early Learning is derived though a number of internal and external factors, all of which are entwined to assist children to reach their greatest potential as well as to meet the outcomes under the Early Years Learning Framework. These include:
the educators


Their knowledge of early childhood development is drawn upon to extend on skills, milestones, learning and overall health and wellbeing.
our environments


The environment is sometimes referred to as another teacher. The way an environment is set out and the equipment and experiences offered provide the opportunities for learning and development, curiosity, and a sense of wonder to occur.
our parents and guardians


These are a child’s first teacher and therefore respected for their ideas, culture, talents, and experience and are invited to share their knowledge and input in ways that enhance our programs.
the children
Their ideas, questions, interests, and skills are drawn on in developing a curriculum that is child focused.
early learning community


The community forms an important part of extending the learning offered to children within Hippity Hop Early Learning. It enables children to experience a range of knowledge and other learnings they otherwise may not access. This occurs outside of the service with our enrichment program (see below) or within the service itself. When held within the service in can be in the form of shared skills such as cooking, or gardening with our internal community, such as parents and extended families or by way of inviting other programs into our Centre.

These programs are ever changing based on the children’s learning and interests at the time but include things such as

Our enrichment programs

These programs have been designed to enrich the experiences offered to children. Using our centre van, we can extend on the interests and learning that is occurring within the room to outside of our service and into our greater community. These learnings are fundamental in providing real life concreate experiences and lessons for children that sometimes just cannot be matched with a book, pictures, or video. Some examples of the enrichment excursions that have emerged throughout learning have included:
learning and researching on the pet shop
After learning and researching all about having and caring for a pet fish, the children were able to go to the pet shop to purchase the fish and all the items they had discovered a fish would need to be happy.

After learning about writing letters and the postal system, the children visited the post office to post their own letters
