Learning & Play
Activities will be supervised and guided by educators to determine how children respond as individuals and as part of a group. Educators will work in conjunction with families to provide learning experiences that are relevant to each child and tailored to their specific needs. A child's home language, culture and religious practices will be accepted and included in the program.
At Lang Park and Acacia Park, we offer our children the opportunities to partake in extracurricular activities within care hours. This will be discussed further with families upon visiting the centre.
Children are encouraged to express themselves creatively through a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities.
Children’s fine and gross motor skills are strengthened and developed through various indoor and outdoor activities, including manipulative play, block play, sensory play, dramatic play, drawing, and other physical activities such as running and skipping.
Mathematics and science concepts along with exploration of natural aspects of our environment are encouraged through block play, building, cooking, water play, sensory play, collecting natural materials such as leaves and rocks and gardening.
Language development is encouraged through educators modelling language, show and tell, storytime, games, poems and dramatic play experiences.
Social/emotional and independence skills are strengthened through activities such as role-play, dramatic play, group games and self-help tasks.
Music and movement activities encourage physical, social and creative areas of a child’s development.
Road safety, hygiene, dental care and nutrition will all be built into the weekly program.
Lang Park and Acacia Park have been brought to life by passionate educators with years of experience who foster children’s curiosity, development and a love of learning.
From here, educators will assess the child’s needs and plan ways to meet these needs. We consistently evaluate this program to ensure we stay on target and help each child reach their full potential.
The curriculum for your child’s learning is displayed in their room at Lang Park; we welcome any suggestions and are happy to answer questions from family members at any time.
These little moments of learning will build on the foundation of your child’s individuality.
