Early Years Learning Program
In 2019, we once again invite children (Birth – 5 years) and their parents to attend our Learning For Life Program that will run every Tuesday morning from 9:30 until 10.45am in the Kindergarten building.
Located in our purpose built Kindergarten, our fun and engaging play-based program is at no cost and is facilitated by our Early Years Specialists.
Where: Mount Carmel College Kindergarten
When: Early in Term One, 2019.
Sessions: Learning for Life sessions operate weekly on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am until 10:45am. Parents/carers are required to supervise their children at all times. Please bring a water bottle and a snack, including a piece of fruit, a sunhat and comfortable clothing.
Learning outcomes are most likely to be achieved when early childhood educators work in partnership with families. Educators recognise that families are children’s first and most influential teachers. (Belonging, Being & Becoming, The Early Years learning Framework for Australia)
The program is designed to offer parents practical support and insight into play-based learning, to build connections between families and young children and to support each child to begin their individual learning journey. The program is filled with play-based learning experiences, exploration and storytelling. The weekly sessions include gross motor, fine motor, sensory, imaginative experiences, as well as activities including song and dance, story-time, art, craft, drama and movement, outdoor play, bikes, ball games, themed sessions and water play activities.
We look forward to welcoming you into our Mount Carmel College community. For easy parking we recommend the Wrest Point Casino car park.
