Early development opportunities for your child

Little Scribblers are proud to run the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for our pre kinder children. The EYLF is a national curriculum framework designed to assist educators in providing young children with opportunities to maximise their potential and establish a foundation for future learning success.

The EYLF is a key component of Australia’s National Quality Framework (NQF) for early childhood education and care. It aims to promote the continuous development of education and care services across the country. The EYLF places special emphasis on play-based learning and acknowledges the significance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) as well as social and emotional development. Your child will learn while having fun.

We provide complimentary School Readiness Vision Screenings for all children prior to the start of the school year.

Social, emotional and cognitive development

In our Pre-Kinder class at Little Scribblers, we prioritise the social, emotional, and cognitive development of children aged 3–4 years, drawing inspiration from the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and blending elements of the Reggio and Montessori philosophies. Through hands-on experiences and meaningful interactions, we cultivate a supportive environment where children learn to navigate social dynamics, express their emotions, and develop essential cognitive skills. Our approach encourages curiosity, creativity, and problem-solving, empowering each child to explore their interests and build a strong foundation for future learning.

With a focus on holistic development, we nurture confident, resilient, and empathetic young learners who are ready to thrive in both school and life.

Pre-Kinder is a time of belonging, being, and becoming:


Belonging is the foundation of a satisfying existence. Children experience a sense of belonging due to their relationships with their family, community, culture, and environment.


Being entails existing in the present moment. Childhood is a unique period of life, and children require time to simply ‘be’ – to play, attempt new things, and enjoy themselves.


Becoming focuses on the learning and development of preschool children. Children begin to develop their sense of self at a young age, which influences the type of adult they will become.
