The Physical Environment At Red Hill Kindergarten

We start each week with our indoor environment set up as a “blank slate”.

This is in line with our core educational goal that relates to children following their own interests and interest areas. 

The children’s interests and knowledge bases make up the content of our programs. The teacher’s intentionality directly relates to the scaffolding of the skills and processes outlined in the current curriculums, Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines and Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).


The Curriculum And Intentional Teaching

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is the national curriculum, supported by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines (QKLG).

The vision and title of The Early Years Learning Framework: BelongingBeing Becoming resonates with early childhood practitioners because it describes what they see as their core business: Creating spaces in which young children can feel attached, feel appreciated for what they are right now and feel supported in what they might become as effective citizens in a complex future world.


Setting Up For Intentional Teaching

At Red Hill Kindergarten, an environment is created in which:

  • there is joint ownership of space and reciprocal decision-making
  • children can access materials, investigate how things work and explore puzzling questions
  • relationships of mutual respect and trust are established
  • children and adults collaborate to solve problems
  • children’s ideas and opinions count and we can find a solution that suits everyone
  • adults contribute knowledge from their own experience to enrich, challenge and extend children’s learning.

Intentional Teaching

Intentional teachers act with specific learning goals in mind, considering your children’s development in social, emotional, cognitive, physical and creative domains and for learning in the academic domains of literacy, maths and science.

Adults intentionally play roles in guiding children’s experiences and children have significant and active roles in planning and organising learning experiences. It is not about saying at a particular part of the day I will intentionally ‘teach’ children something. It is about being intentional about what we provide across the whole day.
