The goal of the Early Years Learning Framework (2009) is to “extend and enrich children’s learning from birth to five years and through the transition to school.”
Bush Kidz program enhances community engagement through inviting members of the community into the centre to aid and participate in the programming for developing children’s learning. When children are exposed to a wider community group and see the involvement they have in the centre, their learning is enhanced through what those members of the community can offer. They experience belonging. Bush Kidz values fundraising activities for the community and sponsors a child through World Vision. Children have also participated as part of a group for Shave for a Cure, Red Nose Day and Jeans for Jeans Day.
