Early Childhood Education

As part of our commitment to building brighter futures together, at Beenyup Primary, building relationships is a priority. We understand that strong relationships between educators and children are crucial in ensuring the success of every child.

Our Early Childhood Program is based on the belief that children learn best through purposeful play underpinned by explicit teaching. Children are engaged in authentic, meaningful learning experiences through planned, proactive and intentional play-based learning combined with explicit teaching. We embrace culture, family and relationships within and beyond our community as major influences in a child’s learning. We understand that all children are born with the natural ability to learn and develop by exploration, investigation and explicit instruction.


Developing a solid foundation of learning in the early years is vital to our children’s development and future success. Developmentally appropriate practices aligned with our whole school approaches allow our educators to nurture each child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development underpinned by high expectations. Our high quality teaching and learning programs are guided by the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards (NQS) and will follow the Western Australian Curriculum, with a strong literacy and numeracy focus.
