Our Programs
Our program consists of planning, observing, analysing, reflecting, doing and then as part of our daily learning, we encourage spontaneous experiences

We use input from children, educators, community and family to plan and tailor our initiatives. Our approach is to provide appropriate, educational responses to a child's ability, interests and further learning.

Our "Learning Boards" provide a visual reflection of each day, including all learning experiences that occur. These boards are an effective way of communicating our learning and programming sheets.

We use a process of evaluation to provide important feedback to educators and our assessments works toward all individual learners.

Our Nursery

In the Nursery, we help our children to develop a sense of belonging to the centre. We help them to reach their developmental milestones and introduce them to the Early Years Learning Framework. Our Nursery children are immersed in interactions, literacy, numeracy and musical experiences daily. Each child has a learning journal which will travel with them on their journey through the Village.

What you can bring

As a parent we encourage you to bring along a change of clothes, a back pack will help and more importantly please bring along your child’s favourite toy, possibly their favourite blanket or some other item they are comfortable and familiar with. As a mum and/or dad we also encourage you to bring along a sense of humour.

Junior & senior toddlers

Our Toddlers are independent, busy little people. We help to nurture their developing skills by providing experiences such as, caring for our animals, sensory and dramatic play experiences. Toddlers benefit from meaningful interactions with peers and educators, we provide an environment where this is possible on a group and individual basis. Toddlers are mastering their self-help skills and we will assist them with all self-help skills as well as toilet training.

Junior & senior kindergarten

Our Kindy program is run by an early childhood teacher and has a balance between play-based experiences and structured activities which creates a holistic approach to learning for our children. In the Kindy rooms our school readiness program is running every day. We encourage and promote the development of social skills and skills required for formal schooling, such as, opening lunchboxes, drinking from drink fountains, being responsible for their own belongings and putting on their own shoes. Our Kindy program is based on the children's interests and abilities, our educators assist children to work in their zone of proximal development by providing them with achievable challenges.
