Early Childhood courses

Both the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the Australian Curriculum recognise that personal and social competence, health and wellbeing and literacy and numeracy should be core focus areas for young children’s learning. Students bring to school a wide range of experiences, abilities, needs and interests, even at these very young ages, and they have a natural curiosity. Their desire to make sense of the world provides a platform to plan and review their learning through interactions with others, experimentation, scaffolding, explicit teaching, practice and play in the classroom and beyond. 

These PETAA courses reference the Foundation – Year 2 English curriculum and focus on listening, reading, viewing, speaking and writing activities for various purposes and contexts – while also supporting students to create and enjoy a range of literature
