In each program you will find that there is a predictable routine to the day which provides the children with a sense of security. You will also find that certain materials are always available for children to choose i.e. paints, blocks, books etc. In addition to these set materials of the day, there are intentional teaching experiences planned to challenge and stimulate your child in becoming an effective learner. Although what is offered in equipment is the same or very similar across groups what the children do with it is changing as they develop and acquire new knowledge and skills.
As educators our staff, implement programs which provide a rich and integrated range of experiences that enhance the children’s learning and development that cover the above outcomes.
It is the educators role to guide the children’s learning through their play by showing appropriate ways of doing things and by offering suggestions to extend their ideas. The educators encourage the children to see themselves as successful learners and to accept responsibility for their own actions.
Regualar group meetings are held to discuss the program, and/or the observations of your children carried out by the staff. The reason for the daily observation is to ensure that the staff are providing activities that are appropriate to the development level of your child.
At Ally’s Kindy, Education Centre, we are committed to recognizing and respecting the wide variety of cultures, which make up our society. Cultural awareness and respect is an important part of the centre program. We work to create a program that reflects the lives of our children,families, staff and community.
