Our children are encouraged to take risks, ask questions, make mistakes and share ideas. This is achieved through a balance of play based activities, led by both child and teacher.
When children can freely explore, their curiosity and imagination will be naturally invoked. Which is why at our school, outdoor learning opportunities, discovery areas, craft corners, reading nooks and flexible learning spaces are designed to create a stimulating yet warm and child centred environment. Children are motivated to take charge of their own learning by following their interests and in turn develop the skills necessary for future success.
Your child takes part in a variety of learning opportunities as part of their early childhood education, such as:
- 'Learning Connections' which encourages whole brain development
- Gross motor and physical education experiences (Perceptual Motor Programme)
- Music and movement experiences
- Yoga and relaxation classes
- Fine motor activities - art and craft experiences
- Broader literature appreciation through library visits and literacy focus sessions
- Technology - through the Interactive Whiteboard, computer and iPad activities
- Swimming and water awareness programme for Prep students
- Opportunities for social and emotional growth, including problem solving, forming relationships and sharing.
We encourage each child to develop to their own potential by giving them opportunities to question, inquire, play and explore while making real life connections with their community and the environment.
