We also value learning and constant improvement so our leadership team, Rhonda, Emily, Neda and Laura have been hard at work rethinking the way we organise our learning environment.
In 2017 we’ll have more children enrolled in the important time before they go to ‘big school’ so we’re combining the Kookaburras and Kangaroos rooms into a single Pre-School Program zone.
You’ll see from the sketch above that the rooms will be optimised into different learning areas — from Dramatic Play and Puzzles to Writing, Literacy, Science and Construction zones!
Our soon-to-be-installed sliding doors into the side playground will further enhance the flow between the spaces and the preschool program will take full advantage of the outdoor spaces we’re so lucky to have at Styles Street.
At certain times throughout the day, children across the the 3.5–5 year range will be arranged into groups to optimise learning approaches for different abilities. School readiness concepts will be incorporated by the educators at an age appropriate level.
We look forward to bringing you more information about Styles Street’s enhanced preschool program soon.
Of course if you have any questions please feel free to ask any of the educators — we’d love to get your feedback!
