Our Educational Program and Practice
Our program encompasses a wide variety of rich and meaningful planned and spontaneous experiences and is child initiated with more complex activities introduced by carers to further challenge and enhance each child’s development. The centre layout is open plan with various learning stations spread throughout. We provide both indoor and outdoor areas and believe children learn through purposeful, hands-on experiences in an environment that promotes and supports children’s natural curiosity to explore, create, experiment, play and learn.
Our Early Childhood Educators are committed to providing children with a high quality program that is based on a sound knowledge of early childhood development and observations taken of the children’s interests, strengths and learning dispositions.
Programs are planned, implemented and evaluated on a monthly basis. The program is displayed throughout the room in a range of formats. We invite and encourage families to ask questions, share ideas and participate in all aspects of the program. Families are encouraged to view their child’s individual portfolio which consists of individual and group observations of their child engaged in play along with learning stories and photographs. Our Early Childhood Educators (ECE) are proud of their specially designed programmes on offer to all Pobblebonks Children.
