Our Curriculum is based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). The principles, practices and outcomes are essential to support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age. As well as their transition to school, and works in synergy with the National Quality Framework. The EYLF has a strong emphasis on play-based learning, and recognises the importance of communication, language, social and emotional development. Our centres also offer a Funded Kindergarten Program, delivered by an Early Childhood Teacher, for children in the year before they attend formal schooling.
We recognise and support responsive, meaningful and respectful relationships and interactions as being the foundation for the provision of quality education.
It’s our intention to keep you up-to-date on all aspects of your child’s learning and development, as well allowing you the room to share your unique insights on your child’s needs. This is all with the intention of creating an individualised approach to learning so that each child can tap into their own inner Genius.
At Genius, we strive to be Australia’s leading provider of premium childcare. It is our mission to provide children with a rich, unique and inspired learning environment where they will form strong foundations for a lifetime of successful learning to their fullest potential and create cherished memories along the way.
Our philosophy is strongly based upon sociocultural theory that social interaction is integral to personal development. For this reason, we find it important to build strong, authentic and respectful relationships not just with all Genius children, but also their families.
We believe a child’s environment is the key to their learning and development. For this reason, we are committed to presenting Genius children with a naturally-inspired environment that creates wonder, invites exploration, and guides them on their path to self-discovery.
Genius Childcare facilities are constructed to be stimulating, interesting and visually appealing, as these factors help to nurture children’s capacity to learn and grow. Careful attention was given to creating a space that is appropriate for the age and interests of Genius children. Our natural wood interiors and abundance of indoor plants foster a connection with and appreciation for nature. Genius Childcare centres also feature a number of interactive spaces and adventure zones to encourage investigation, play and social interaction.
When developing the concept for our Genius centres, it was important that we created spaces that were not just beautiful and peaceful, but also environmentally sound. We endeavour to encourage and support sustainable practices in a number of ways, including the following:
