I really like the inclusion of teaching the children a language other than English, visits to the garden, yoga and our visitors eg. Aboriginal liaison, drumming man, and karate lessons have all been great activities! ~ Parent
We offer children a wide range of enjoyable activities and experiences. In addition to the children’s play and intentional teaching, we have quite a few special guests who visit our centre to support our educational program. These include the Matilda Farmyard Nursery, Reptile Man, a magician, a puppet show, community members who visit us for ‘People who help us’ week, a soccer coach, karate instructor, etc. We currently teach the children Japanese and have previously taught Spanish; thanks to the skills of our wonderful Educators!
Working in collaboration with children and families contributes to our rich learning environment, and families are encouraged to contribute to our program regularly through our Educators’ program and daily records, through spontaneous experiences and guest visits, and by offering ideas and suggestions for activities.
At Bowral Street Childcare children are engaged in a variety of experiences, which include opportunities to explore and discover their environment, work together, problem solve, engage in sensory play, engage on their own or with educators, and participate in quiet or vigorous experiences. Children’s learning is documented on our KidsXap Digital Learning Portfolio and information about the program is readily available to all parents from the KidsXap app and web portal and also in our monthly newsletters.
