Under Twos (Nursery and Toddlers)

We have a flexible routine within our Nursery and Toddler rooms to cater for each childs individual needs.

We would like the transition to care for the child to be easy for them as well as for you, so we try to keep their routine similar to what it would be at home.

Babies and toddlers are unique they have a particular way of learning about the world around them.

We aim to provide learning opportunities that will allow the children to explore and understand their environment around them while getting to know their own capabilities and independence within a warm, caring and family-based environment.

Developing one on one relationships and face to face interactions is vital when building your childs trust with us and their sense of security in the nursery environment.

Nappy changing, feeding and other routines are all important to your child’s learning experience we ensure every infant receives nurturing and responsive care.

Over Two’s (Junior Kindy and Senior Kindy)

The Junior Kindy and Senior Kindy rooms routine is flexible allowing for us to cater to each child’s individual needs.

Toilet training, self-help skills, and independence are three of the big areas that come in to focus during the children’s time in these rooms. We work in partnership with parents and families to create a safe, relaxing environment.

The learning opportunities provided within our service are based on the child’s interests and spontaneous play.

Intentional teaching will also play a huge role in each child’s day with consideration to long and short-term goals developed in collaboration with families, Co educators and the community such as Occupational and Speech Therapists.

Kindergarten

Our Kindergarten provides for the children a program based on the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines to ensure adequate learning through a play-based curriculum.

This guideline has links to the Early Years Learning Framework.

In the Kindergarten children are encouraged to follow their interests, investigate and experiment as they learn and develop new skills. The Early Childhood Teachers work alongside the children to encourage and support them through the learning process.

The Kindergarten environment has been designed to motivate and cater for individual learning, encourage individual, small group work and whole class collaboration.

It is an environment that celebrates peer achievement in a climate of mutual respect and understanding.

The educators work closely with the children and monitor their learning and encourage their personal areas of interest and new learning experiences.

The programme aims to develop in each child an active curiosity about the world and an enthusiasm for learning based on their own needs, interests and investigations.

The teachers, work in partnership with parents in the children’s care and educational growth, establishing a strong connection in the best interest of each child
