Role Overview

The Importance of the Educational Leader Role

Only About Children’s’ Approach to Early Learning 

The Oac Grow Curriculum is our unique educational framework and the basis for essential early years learning and development. It includes core practices and programs that children are immersed in daily, through a balance of structured and unstructured play-based learning, guided by the children’s interests.

It is guided by the Australia Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian National Curriculum. Within this learning framework we deliver our own unique programs, designed in consultation with our in-house curriculum and education specialists.

We believe children thrive through intentional teaching, in small age-based groups tailored for nursery, toddler and preschool/kinder. Our approach is holistic in nature – in that children’s education and development experiences are immersed into daily practice.
