Individual programs are designed for each group utilising each teacher’s particular style.
Each program is based on:
- A love of learning and discovery by offering a wide range of play based experiences
- A curriculum centred on creative experiences where children’s individual interests, ideas, culture and abilities are realised and encouraged
- Learning spaces that inspire children aesthetically and intellectually: spaces that reinforce connections with their home, family, community and the world
- An early learning setting that is sensitive to the enormous developmental changes that occur during the early years: by acknowledging the children’s need for exploration, experimentation and discovery as their vocabulary and intellectual skills expand rapidly
- A balance between each child striving for their independence and their need for continual reassurance
- Outdoor and Indoor spaces that are designed to engage every child in quality experiences in both built and natural environments which provide a rich and diverse range of experiences.
- Children are encouraged to become environmentally responsible and to show respect for the environment.
- Promoting each child’s agency, enabling them to make choices and decisions which influence events and their world.
As part of each program, we are also committed to providing the children a range of incursions occurring throughout the year. Incursions may include such things as:
- Musical performers
- Music and movement program
- Artist in residence program
- Chicken hatching/Rabbit rearing
- PMP (Perceptual Motor Program)
- Theatrical and drama performances
- Wildlife incursion
- Mobile farmyard
- Drawing program
