Our Philosophy

At Lyndel, we value early childhood education as the foundation for lifelong learning. We understand the value of assisting children to develop positive self-esteem, self-confidence, self-worth and strong positive identities by ensuring they feel safe, secure and respected.

Our Curriculum

SINCE 1973

We provide child-centred Early Years Learning Framework for Australia (EYLF) and Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF) programs. The concept was developed from watching children on a regular basis, evaluating their needs and planning activities from these observations. We aim to create programs to meet the children’s needs and therefore enhance personal development. Each child will be pace guided to develop at an individual pace according to his or her unique, own way. Programs are evaluated on a regular basis.
