At Wattle Road Early Education Centre, our qualified and experienced educators understand that your child needs a skillful balance of new, dynamic and exciting learning experiences combined with the familiar and the predictable in a secure environment.
A typical day at Wattle Road Early Education Centre would be:
As parents and children arrive, our staff greet them; parents then sign their children in and settle them at an activity before saying goodbye. All children remain together in one classroom and participate in the various activities prepared for the morning. This is a special time of the day as all children get to interact with each other especially for siblings.
The morning consists of group time where we discuss topics such as the day of the week, date and the month as well using descriptive words to describe the weather. During this time the children partake in various activities that are designed to encourage children to explore and engage to enhance the different areas of development (e.g. physical, cognitive, social, emotional and language).
During this time, children learn through play both indoors and outdoors. The resources, books and activities have been carefully selected and arranged to support their learning. Educators value child-initiated play and also engage in co-constructed play with the children. Further, they look for opportunities to intentionally teach children as they play.
