At Discovery Kids, our experienced educators plan your child's learning experiences based on the My Time, Our Place (MTOP) and Early Learning Years (EYLF) Frameworks. The MTOP Framework is designed for school age children between the ages of 6 and 12 years, while EYLF caters for preschool-aged children, up to 5 years of age. EYLF focuses on the preparation of children to transition into school, while the MTOP framework aims to develop and nurture these foundation skills throughout your child's school years. Please see below for more detailed information.
My Time, Our Place
The Council of Australian Governments has developed My Time, Our Place – Framework for School Age Care in Australia (The Framework) to assist educators to provide children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success in life.
The Framework has been designed for use by school age care educators working in partnership with children, their families and the community, including schools. It represents Australia’s first national framework for school age care to be used by school age care educators, and aims to extend and enrich children’s wellbeing and development in school age care settings.
Early Years Learning Framework
This is Australia’s first national Early Years Learning Framework for early childhood educators. The aim of this document is to extend and enrich children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transition to school. The Council of Australian Governments has developed this Framework to assist educators to provide young children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success in learning.
The Framework forms the foundation for ensuring that children in all early childhood education and care settings experience quality teaching and learning. It has a specific emphasis on play-based learning and recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.
