Long Day Care
Long Day Care differs from Kindergarten in that it is not centered around preparing children for the primary school environment and curriculum. All of our programs are underpinned by the Early Learning Years Framework and are designed to support children’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development.
We believe that children learn and develop through active and constructive involvement in play. Children will experience a ‘hands on’ approach where they are challenged to explore, investigate and discover. Children are decision makers in our educational program which engages children as co-constructors of the curriculum.
Our Educators observe the children and their curiosities on a regular basis, evaluating their needs and creating a curriculum from these observations.
The learning environment is more than the equipment you see, it is how our people use the equipment in ways to challenge, provoke and ignite engagement with children’s ideas. We recognise that all children develop at different rates and in different ways; emotionally, socially, intellectually, morally, physically, and spiritually and aim to meet people where they’re at.
