Belonging, being and becoming

The Belonging, Being and Becoming framework forms the foundation of our program. It recognises the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy) and social and emotional development.

The eduKare Curriculum is holistic. They learn simultaneously in all areas:

  • Emotional/social,
  • Intellectual
  • Moral spiritual
  • and Physical.

Our program:

  • instils a sense of responsibility by inviting children to be active community members - taking responsibility for ourselves, our belongings, each other, and our world. We encourage philanthropy and have an active partnership with The Smith Family.
  • encompasses sustainability, focuses on nature and our connection to the earth and the environment.

Our children are grouped to ensure they are nurtured and well cared for. Grouping according to these sensitive periods allows the best opportunities to develop these skills, as well as their gross and fine motor skills.

Bottle Brush - Nursery (0-2 year olds)

Our children are provided with a cosy, warm and nurturing atmosphere that is calm and mirrors characteristics of a usual home environment. The layout of our centre helps each child to feel secure. All your child’s requirements are catered for with designated areas for play, sleeping, active time, nutritious meals and physical care such as toileting and nappy changing.

Blue Bells- Toddler (2-3 year olds)

Movement is at the very centre of life at the toddler stage of development. Your child will be involved in the exciting task of learning to move efficiently in their world. Movement, aids discovery - it reinforces a variety of perceptual motor and academic concepts. The strong correlation between movement and brain development is central to the activities we choose to place in our toddler environment for the children.

Banksia - Preschool (3-5 year olds)

In a co-operative and non-competitive environment, the 3- to 5-year-old, experiences the joy of learning and acquires real self-discipline. We focus on each individual child and prepare the environment carefully, according to their interests, so that with the right guidance, your child can be free to explore and experiment with their world. Spontaneous activity and play in a respectful environment will foster independence and develop your child’s social skill repertoire.

About our Transition to School Program

Our program has been developed by qualified Early Childhood Teachers, in conjunction with feedback and input from local Primary Schools. We aim to ensure a smooth and successful transition for your family to “big” school.

Our Transition to School Program is a holistic one offering opportunities to develop a range of social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language skills. Our aim is to provide your child with experiences encompassing a wide range of skills to continue their life-long journey of learning. We prepare them with resilience, confidence, and courage to be risk takers, to try new challenges, and to learn from their mistakes. Your children will be prepared for the expectations of their academic primary schooling environment.

There is equal importance placed on play-based learning and planned intentional teaching experiences between educators and children. The Transition to School program provides increased opportunity for your child to practice these intentional teaching experiences, so that they are equipped for a formal classroom.

Educators will implement the Transition to School program for the children going to Primary School daily, however the underpinning principles and practices are embedded into the Preschool Room curriculum as a whole.

As part of the Transition to School program, each week we will focus on six specific key learning areas - rotating between literacy, numeracy, science, creative arts, sustainability and health and well-being. We coordinate group discussions (relating to Primary School) or a physical activity session (focusing on specific skill development).
