After Kinder Care

After Kindergarten Care (AKC) is provided to meet the needs of families requiring additional care for their children. Just like our 3 and 4 year old offerings, the program is planned by staff based on the needs and interests of the attending children.  AKC is available to all families with children enrolled in our three or four year old programs. It runs during the term only.

You can read more about AKC here.

Book and pay for a casual AKC session here.

The National Early Years Framework 

The National Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) are designed to advance all children’s learning and development from birth to eight years. These frameworks for learning have been developed by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority in partnership with the professional educational community. The guiding Practice Principles for Learning and Development of the Framework are informed by the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1989) and the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006. 

At Denzil Don Kindergarten, we embed the Victorian Early Years Learning Development Framework (VEYLDF) and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) within our program, understanding children’s wellbeing is a prerequisite for lifelong learning.
