Port Augusta West CSC curriculum is based on the National Early Years
Learning Framework for children aged 0-5years ‘Belonging, Being & Becoming.’
BELONGING: is the basis for living a fulfilling life. Children feel they belong
because of the relationships they have with their family, community, culture and
BEING: is about living here and now. Childhood is a special time in one’s life and
children need time to just ‘be’- time to play, time to discover, time to try new
things and time to have fun.
BECOMING: is about the learning and development that young children
experience. Children start to form their sense of identity from an early age,
which shapes the type of adult they become.
The framework has 5 learning outcomes:
1. Children have a strong sense of identity
2. Children are connected and contribute to their world
3. Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
4. Children are confident and involved learners
5. Children are effective communicators
