The educational program at Caulfield Grammar School reflects the practices, principles and outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework. This framework is used alongside the Primary Years Programme (IB).
We harness children’s motivation and engagement by integrating their ideas and interests into the program. Our educators initiate open-ended activities with no prescribed outcomes (known as provocation), in order to stimulate ideas, initiative, and imagination.
Caulfield Grammar School’s learning program immerses children and staff ‘in the moment’. They have time to play, listen, wonder, and engage with indoor and outdoor environments, while developing their social, emotional, physical and language skills.
Our learners and educators enjoy reflecting and sharing new discoveries and insights. Inspired by the practices of the Reggio Emilia educational project, children are encouraged and supported to share their knowledge and understanding using a wide variety of ‘languages’, such as words, movement, drama and music, drawing, painting, wire, clay, sculpture, collage and block building.
