The Early Learning Resource assists kindergarten teachers, early-childhood educators and early-learning teams with the implementation of The Kindergarten Program, 2016.
Through the Early Learning Resource, children are given the opportunity to develop physical literacy and health literacy skills that will be the foundation for their future learning. This resource will encourage children to establish positive attitudes and an appreciation for lifelong participation in order to lead healthy, active lives.
Ophea's Early Learning Resource shares the goals of The Kindergarten Program, which are as follows:
- to establish a strong foundation for learning in the early years;
- to help children make a smooth transition from home, child care, or preschool settings to school settings;
- to allow children to reap the many proven benefits of learning through relationships, and through play and inquiry;
- to set children on a path of lifelong learning and nurture competencies that they will need to thrive in the world of today and tomorrow.
