The Head Start Curriculum

Paving the Way for Your Child’s Bright Future, Starting from Any Age

At the core of our philosophy lies child-led education, putting your child in the driver’s seat of their own learning journey. By encouraging child-led decision-making, we empower them to cultivate ownership, active participation, resilience, and unshakable confidence. Guided by our dedicated educators, this approach ignites curiosity and sparks the flame of inquiry within each child.

From day one, regardless of age, your child’s unique learning voyage begins with us.

Our team of Bright Days Early Educators is tirelessly committed to laying the foundational skills that propel children into the next phase of their journey. Our programming is meticulously tailored to be age-appropriate, always keeping developmental stages in mind. The focus remains on fostering holistic growth through play-based learning, nurturing every child’s innate potential during these critical early years.

In seamless harmony, our educators facilitate smooth transitions between different rooms, ensuring that every child continues to progress and refine their readiness skills. Through this collaborative effort, we set the stage for a seamless and progressive learning experience that maximises each child’s potential.

Personal Care

Positive Relationships

At the heart of our educational program, we cultivate and nurture secure, supportive, and mutually beneficial relationships, setting the gold standard for private early learning centers across Brisbane.

These positive relationships naturally give rise to positive interactions, creating the optimal environment for your child’s holistic development. When children are engaged, they experience a sense of empowerment that enables them to articulate their thoughts and actively make choices in their learning journey.

In our education approach, we recognise children as learners with the following attributes:

  • Competent, Capable, and Creative.
  • Secure, Connected, and Respectful.
  • Happy, Playful, and Curious.
  • Confident, Motivated, and Involved.
  • Inquisitive, both as Problem Posers and Problem Solvers.

These characteristics serve as the guiding principles shaping our educational environment. We ensure that each child is not only well-prepared for academic endeavours but also equipped with the skills and mindset to navigate the complexities of life beyond the classroom.

Choose our program for an educational experience that goes beyond academics, fostering a well-rounded, confident, and curious learner. Your child’s journey to success starts here!
