Our Services

School Readiness Program

Our Shellharbour based child care service offers a school readiness program to children in their preschool year. Our aim is to ensure that each and every child that graduates from our preschool program is fully prepared for their next educational step.

Early Years Learning Frameworkxx

The team at Echidna Children's Centre have been using the EYLF since early 2010 – well before it became a mandatory part of the National Quality Framework. We use the Early Years Learning Framework as part of our curriculum to guide our learning based and school readiness programs. The Early Years Learning Framework is a government initiative that encourages universal access to early childhood education, and demands consistent, quality early education across sectors, and various regions.

Physical Activity

Echidna Children's Centre aims to promote children’s physical activity and the development of their gross motor and fundamental movement skills through a range of planned and spontaneous physically active play experiences, as well as through everyday tasks.

The staff recognises the importance of supporting families to promote their children’s physical activity, and their gross motor and fundamental movement skills development.
