Early Years Learning Framework
Humpty Doo Community & Child Care Centre Inc follow the EYLF which is the new national early learning framework for children from birth to five years. We believe in the importance of play as babies and young children use play to explore, learn and understand their world as they learn to communicate, discover, imagine and create.
Children use play to demonstrate what they have learnt and what they are trying to understand, play is the foundations of the EYLF and our educators at Humpty Doo Child Care follow the EYLF to ensure children receive a quality and educational program.
The EYLF describes childhood as a time of Belonging, Being and Becoming, our educators ensure relationships are built with children that are secure, trusting and nurturing to promote confidence in children’s development.

In the Learning
Educa is not just for sharing cute pictures, you can share deep learning insights, in real time. Early educators are better when they know your child — their culture, interests and what they’re telling you at home about the instruction. Your feedback as a parent — as the world expert on your child — is vital.
However, to be truly valuable, you need to understand your teacher’s educational approach, the learning goals and plans behind all the fun activities.
This is where Educa fits in
