Early Years Framework
Mini Maestros embraces the Australian Early Years Learning Framework guidelines as they reaffirm the foundations of our program.
Mini Maestros provides educational music classes that nurture and extend children’s learning and development. Our sequential, age-specific program employs a strengths-based approach centred around concepts such as ‘learning through play’, ‘continuity of learning’ and ‘high expectations’. These concepts are important principles and practices that underpin the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
Mini Maestros sees children’s learning as integrated and interconnected. As such, our lessons are planned with a wide range of learning outcomes in mind. As well as learning musical skills, our program aims to develop the whole child and, therefore, actively encourages and fosters:
- Language and literacy skills
- Auditory and visual processing
- Social skills
- Gross and fine motor skills
- Inclusion and teamwork
- Verbal and non-verbal communication
- Spatial awareness
- Cultural awareness
Mini Maestros teachers follow detailed lesson plans with specific aims and objectives. Our sequential program means that each lesson builds on the previous one and provides worthwhile, challenging experiences for children that work within their zone of proximal development.
Mini Maestros is a flexible, stimulating and developmentally appropriate program for babies and pre-schoolers. Children learn musical concepts and develop a life-long appreciation for music in a playful environment. Mini Maestros is committed to developing the whole child.
