Nurturing responsive relationships with children is our primary focus within the Nursery. Educators take time to get to know you and your child so that your routines are reflected in the daily program and all children have a strong sense of well-being and belonging. The program and all children have a strong sense of well-being and belonging. The program concentrates around children's primary areas of learning their senses - what they see, hear, taste, touch and smell.
A tiny toddler’s keen sense of discovering the world around them is supported through the creation of environments that ignite their curiosities. Play is central to all learning and our educators ensure there are many varied opportunities for children to become independent and confident learners.
A burst in language development and the opportunity to learn about turn taking and socialising is the main influence in the educational program for toddlers. Flexible classroom routines are filled with opportunities for role play, dance, music and emerging literacy balances the active physical play that children require each day. Educators support children emerging independence whilst being responsive to their need for closeness and security.
An emergent curriculum based on children's interests engages the 3 year olds curiosity and sense of adventure. The 3 year old loves to test their limitations; they want to show their helpfulness and empathy and educators support children's motivation to persist with challenges. The daily program provides choice between the indoor and outdoor classroom and learning environments are prepared to challenges and engage children in their learning. Educators are supportive in encouraging children's sense of wonder and recognise children strong sense of identity.
Developing friendships and group play offer our teachers further opportunities to extend your child's skills in negotiating, collaborating and social interactions. We focus on learning environments that foster development in the arts, numeracy, literacy and science and from here project development offers the prospect to delve deeper in gaining skills, knowledge and attributes that will prepare your child for their formal schooling years.
