The Learning for Life program is housed in our Kindergarten centre and provides both young children and their families exceptional opportunities to seek and make meaning through play-based learning.
The Learning for Life program is open to all families within the community who have a child aged between birth and 5 years. Parents attend Learning for Life alongside their child.
Our fun and energising play-based program is free and is facilitated by our Early Years Specialists, who develop a program to meet the needs of children in this age group.
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.
