    Default What they learn in Kinder (vic)

    Hi,
    I am trying to track down the list of things they learn whilst attending Kinder. I can seem to find anything on the education website. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    I'm happy to stand corrected but I'm fairly certain there is no academic requirements for kinder. Kinder is about social and emotional development as well as developing fine motor skills.

    No in Vic kinder is the year (or two) before formal primary school. There is 3 year old (5 hours per week) and 4 year old (15 hours per week). Obviously there is a bit of age variance in there.

    Ok 5 year olds should be the National Curriculum Foundation level
    EYLF (Early Years Learning Framework) is a National doc covering 0-8 years
