Being. Becoming. Beloning

Sunshine family day care educators provide the program based on approved leaning framework: 

  • Early Years Learning framework (for children 0 - 5 years old)  and

  • My Time Our Place (for school age children)

Those frameworks are Based on the Concept of Being, Belonging and Becoming: ​

  • Being – Simply means letting each child be who they are and letting children be children giving them the sense that they are free to explore the world around them.

  • Belonging – Children learn best when they feel as though they belong to their families, to their communities and to the world at large. By helping a child increase his sense of belonging you can help provide a safe and comfortable environment in which a child can learn.

  • Becoming – Simply means that a child continues to grow by experiencing new things. It is simply the acceptance that as a child learns and grows he is constantly changing.

Each educator documents learning and development of the children in their Education and Care. Please ensure that you talk to your child’s educator who will be happy to show and discuss your child’s individual developmental records and documentation.
