Our Child Focused Programs
The Preschool Program
Weekly preschool and school transition programs allow age appropriate experiences with specific focus on the development areas such as Cognitive development (literacy , numeracy and name recognition), social and emotional development (rules setting and self help skills). These tasks will be beneficial towards independence and self esteem at kindergarten. Parents are encouraged and supported to participate in the programs. Become an active participant in the day by assisting the staff with the daily routines like encouraging children to pack away, share a skill with the children by cutting up fruit for morning tea.
The Toddler Program
The toddler program allows for children's needs to move towards being independent, it also allows frequent changes of activities, exercise and space, time and places to run and explore.
Staff are here to support you and your child, and provide feedback regarding your child's development. We are able to assist parents needing support from other agencies with advocacy and referral.
We facilitate free community play groups on Tuesday and Friday mornings 9.30-11.30 for parents and children not enrolled at the centre. Playgroup gives children an opportunity to socialize through informal play. It also provides parents and carers an opportunity to share ideas and experiences. It is a great transition to starting child care in a supportive environment . Above all, learn through play. We also participate in community events and hold special events for families.
