Lyons Early Childhood School

An ACT Public School

Our Curriculum

Children Playing Lyons Early Childhood School (LECS) is an ACT Government school.

We implement local and national curriculum frameworks. Our approach centres around play-based learning and focuses on children's interests and wonderings. Play Workshops are a key component of Preschool to Year 2 timetables, allowing children to interact, question, connect, problem-solve, communicate, reflect, and discover.

Our Birth to Preschool educators use the Early Years Learning Framework to guide their practice and to 'provide young children with opportunities to maximise their potential and develop a foundation for future success' (Early Years Learning Framework, page 5).

Kindergarten to Year 2 educators use the Australian Curriculum to plan, implement and assess learning and teaching. Play-based enquiry at LECS links to the explicit teaching of English and Mathematics outcomes. Children's progress across all key learning areas is tracked and reported to parents. We place a strong focus on all developmental domains, including social, emotional, language, communication and physical domains.

As part of our daily program children have access to a wide range of equipment and resources. To avoid loss or damage, we encourage children not to bring toys in from home unless it is part of their learning program.
