“MY TIME, OUR PLACE”
This is the new framework for school age care in Australia. It has a specific emphasis on play-based learning and recognizes the importance of communication, language, social and emotional development.
The focus of this framework is that each child will have a sense of:
Belonging, Being & Becoming
MIDDLE YEARS FRAMEWORK
The Middle Years Framework is a holistic approach which encompasses a wide range of learning and teaching strategies where children are actively involved in all learning areas.
At the Centre we offer a wide range of areas that allow for learning in the following:
- Puzzles & Board Games
- Fantasia Play
- Sport & Active Games
We have an indoor space that provides children with the opportunities to work alone or in groups, to be both quiet and in active learning situations.
We believe in the potential of each child to participate in his/her own development and growth within a warm and caring rich environment.
Children are encouraged to contribute to play experiences that emerge from their own ideas:
- By setting up environments
- Program planning
- Choosing resources
We celebrate birthdays in the traditional way with a special cake sometimes baked in our own kitchen.
ACTIVE AFTER SCHOOL COMMUNITIES PROGRAM
As part of the Australian Sports Commission active after-school communities program is run at our Centre. We have trained coaches who run weekly session in areas such as:
And many more.
We have use of some great outdoor spaces; a large oval, tennis courts, basketball courts and a playground.
We believe that all children deserve to develop a sense of Belonging, Being and Becoming. Each child has the right to an environment that is nurturing and stimulating. The search for knowledge is paramount to each child’s development.
Family input is welcomed at our Centre. Family members are valued and their contribution to our program is always welcome.
