Classrooms

​"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
​Junior Class 0-3 Year Old

 

Junior Class provides a warm, nurturing and safe environment for up to 8 children, 6wks to 3yrs years of age. In this room we focus on creating a secure atmosphere away from home where the children can develop a sense of belonging. Educators provide an educational program designed to stimulate the brain, encourage social interaction, promote fine and gross motor skills and develop the children’s language skills.

Every child is observed and planned for based on individual and group interests as well as developmental needs.  Educators take advantage of intentional teaching opportunities in both a group and one on one setting. This not only helps to maximise learning opportunities but helps to foster relationships and create secure attachments between the children and their educators. Learning outcomes, principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework are used as a base for all programming.

​Intermediate Preschool Class

 

The Intermediate Preschool Class caters for 10 children aged from 3 to 4 years. Children are provided with an educational program that looks to build on their developing fine and gross motor skills, improve listening skills and foster oral language. We work on developing positive relationships and communication with peers.  Each child is included in the education program; providing opportunity for children to learn and become their individual selves. Educator initiated, and spontaneous experiences are provided daily with educators taking advantage of intentional teaching opportunities to scaffold children's development. Learning outcomes, principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework are used as a base for all programming.

Senior Preschool Class


The Senior Preschool Class caters for 15 children aged from 4 to 6 years. Children are presented with opportunities that will assist with holistic  developmental and preparation for primary school. Activities that encourage scientific and mathematical thinking, problem solving, role play and those that develop a sense of self are all very much a part of our day. Opportunities are offered daily to assist in the development of resiliance, perserverance, concentration and self help skills. Every child is observed and planned for based on the individual and group interests as well as developmental needs. Educator initiated, and spontaneous experiences are also providing daily with educators taking advantage of intentional teaching opportunities in both a group and one on one setting.
