What can you expect from Learning for Life?

Our experienced Early Years staff develop weekly programs to meet the needs of children within our local community inspired by Christian values. Each week our Learning for Life sessions will:

  • support families in understanding child development
  • strengthen relationships between families and young children
  • respond to learners and assist them as they begin their life-long learning journey
  • provide learning experiences that will explore the development of key areas such as gross motor skills, fine motor skills, sensory awareness, creativity and problem solving
  • provide play-based educational activities that will engage children’s learning, curiosity and exploration.

As part of the learning experience, parents and carers are responsible for their children at all times during the sessions. Children should wear comfortable and weather appropriate clothing (spare clothes are recommended).

Are there costs?

There are no costs for attending the program. We kindly ask that all families bring their own drink bottles and snacks.
