Stimulating & Nurturing Learning Environments
The Service is a single storey architecturally designed building, comprising of 5 large learning environments, reception, commercial kitchen, educators programming and study room, Art Studio and onsite parking. Our outdoor environments create 3 large areas that wrap around the exterior of the service, creating a natural play space for all ages.
Our learning environments reflect our Reggio Emilia Philosophy link, where the classroom is the 3rd teacher and provide the highest quality of education through our abundance and a large variety of learning resources.
Within our service, we believe in providing holistic principles and teaching practices to enhance children’s learning and development.
- Stimulating, Rich and Nurturing Environments that utilize and underpin the Reggio Emilia Philosophy of the ‘Environment as the Third Teacher.’
- Engaging children in our programs by implementing specific teaching methods and providing thought provoking and innovative provocation learning experiences in conjunction with the EYLF and NQS.
- Communicating with parents and families with daily updates, learning stories, newsfeeds, newsletters and through our communication app.
- Exposing children to a variety of learning opportunities within our well-resourced indoor and outdoor learning environments.
- Focusing on paddock to plate and bush to bowl based studies to give children a well-balanced learning experience to connect them with their natural surroundings.
Our centre is on one level, meaning the overall atmosphere of the service is one of unity and collaboration. The ground level features 5 classrooms catering for children aged 0-5 years. Within these learning environments, we have separated the learning groups into smaller groups to ensure the highest quality of care and education. The indoor classrooms cater for children in the following configuration
Surrounding these classrooms there are 3 large beautiful natural outdoor environments, consisting of natural elements such as rockery, water pumps, sandpits, vegetable gardens, swings, teepees, a chicken coop and bunny enclosure, as well as age appropriate resources to promote physical literacy and fundamental movement skills.
