Go Kindy highly value children and believe the formative years of childhood should be a period in each child’s life where they are encouraged to investigate and explore their surroundings through a stimulating and enjoyable environment.

Each child should experience success, be empowered in confidence and become a learner through engaging in as many experiences as possible. The Go Kindy Team have created learning programs to compliment your child’s growth and ensure they will have every opportunity to reach their full potential. All children are unique and special and at Go Kindy we deem children learn best from engaging.

Go Me

Go Me supports the Early Years Learning Framework’s (EYLF) view of children’s lives as characterised in Belonging, Being and Becoming. 


Belonging

The bases for living a fullfed life, everybody needs to have a sense of where and whom they belong.  At Go Kindy Early Education Centres we strive to develop positive relationships with children, families and educators to develop a strong sense of belonging within our services.


Being

Is about the here and now. Childhood is a precious time where children need environments and opportunities to just ‘BE’. A time to explore, investigate, discover and create. At Go Kindy Early Education Centres we constantly strive to empower children through their play to develop a strong sense of being within our services.


Becoming

Is about the learning and development that young children experience and how our educators work in partnership with families to enhance and guide children to their full potential. At Go Kindy Early Education Centres, we strive to support and guide children’s learning and development through collaborative partnerships focused on quality outcomes for all children, enabling a strong sense of becoming within our services.

Go Language


Language not only refers to the spoken word but it also incorporates gesturing, facial expressions and verbal sounds. This is why language development for infants begins from when your baby is born. Infants are aware of sounds in the environment. They listen intently to other's speaking and begin to cry if they hear an unexpected noise. This is all part of your infant's language development.


From 4 to 8 months

During this period, older infants pass from “cooing” to beginning to “babble”. Infants become more active in conversations and will give the impression of wanting to join in the discussion. They will also show interest in their surroundings, look at toys and observe others

From 8 to 12 months

There are two ways infants use language. First, they will listen to sounds that they hear and interpret them in their own way. This is known as receptive language. Secondly, infants will use their expressive skills, which enable them to make sounds of their own, so they can communicate with you. Most commonly an infant’s receptive language will be more advanced than expressive language.

Toddlers 2-3 Year Old’s

Toddlers use language in more sophisticated ways during this phase of their life. This occurs as a toddler has a better grasp of the rules of the language, through increased vocabulary and learning new skills. They are becoming increasingly familiar with the concept of conversation and through play and social interactions it strengthens and improves their verbal skills.

Pre-schoolers 4-5 Year Old’s

Pre-schoolers enjoy talking and are happy to tell their ideas or what they're thinking. They combine words with gestures and facial expressions to make their stories more believable and interesting. Words begin to flow easily and with little effort. During this age, pre-schoolers will have an endless amount of questions and seeks more detailed information about events or topics that interest them.

Go Discovery

Children engage in open ended exploration with increasing independence, acknowledging their expanding abilities and communicate their understandings of the world with confidence and creativity. 


Go Discovery: 

  • Encourages active engagement
  • Promotes motivation
  • Develops creativity and problem-solving skills
  • Promotes autonomy, responsibility and independence


Go Discovery is the concept of allowing children to learn about the world and how it works through exploration. It is well established that, children learn best by doing, so this type of learning is a natural fit for their development. It encourages motivation, active involvement and creativity whist promoting autonomy and independence.

The Go Discovery learning approach allows children to revisit and build on their own interests each week offering both prescriptive and free-play activities. Some children appreciate the chance to entirely direct their own learning, while others enjoy following more structured learning opportunities.

Go Discovery provides an opportunity for children to learn, explore and develop through practical hands on experiences including carpentry, box and block construction, painting, water play, sand play, cooking, imaginative play, physical play, manipulative and loose parts play, science experiments, nature play, craft activities and more.

Early Education in Australia has transformed over the years to become a fundamental, all-encompassing fusion of learning, playing, communities and families. Not only does childcare provide nurturing care and freedom of choice to families but also guides children through a significant time of their development and education that prepares them for the years that follow.
