Educational & Development Programs
Every child is born full of creativity. Nurturing it is one of the most important things childhood educators do. Creativity helps your child to become a better communicator and problem solver. It prepares them to thrive in today’s world — and to shape tomorrow’s.
Woodlands Education, Development, and Curriculum 6 Weeks to 12 Months
At Woodlands, we understand that the first 12 months of life is a crucial period for, learning, development and building secure attachments. Woodlands values the importance of meaningful partnerships between Families and Teachers. We recognise that this requires continuous collaboration. Upon your infants’ first day, their Educator will spend time getting to know you and your infant. We will complete a personal profile about your infant’s daily routine, sleep, bottle and dietary requirements, interests, dislikes, and events that are important to your family. This ensures that your infant’s transition into care and education at Woodlands is positive and familiar.
Woodlands Nursery Classrooms are beautifully designed, safe, and inviting places where infants can thrive while being supported by our experienced Teachers and Educators to, reach developmental milestones, learn about their world and develop a sense of belonging.
Woodlands Teachers and Educators use their extensive knowledge of child development, current teaching and learning theories, and the Woodlands Method to plan and implement learning programs, as well as meaningful transitions/routines to support and engage your infant in the program.
At Woodlands, each child is encouraged to learn at their own pace and learning programs are tailored to meet the needs of individual children, their interests, and abilities.

Woodlands Child Summative Assessments.
The Summative Assessment is completed, through planning to support further learning. This can be identified when there are gaps of information in relation to a particular learning outcome enabling teachers to look for further examples and which learning outcomes to highlight and focus on during planning in the future.
The Woodlands Summative Assessment builds a picture of your child’s progress over time, through
the evidence collected. The Victorian Early Learning Framework and communication with parents provides key reference points in which your child’s progress can be identified and documented and shows an overall picture of your child’s learning journey.
Woodlands is a Distinguished Early Childhood School and Kindergarten Recognised by the Federal and State Australian Governments.
