Yarralea Children's Centre's program is underpinned by the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF), the National Quality Standards (NQS) and our Philosophy.  We believe that learning in an indoor / outdoor play-based program enhances children's sense of identity, connectedness, well-being, confidence, thinking and communication. Yarralea's programs are child-centred and emergent. Children's ideas and stories steer the curriculum and construct a learning environment that is meaningful to each individual child.
