Our centre provides a stimulating and fun environment to enhance your child’s learning in their early years. Learning starts long before school, with the first five years of a child’s life being crucial to laying the foundations for their ability to learn throughout their later years. We have specifically designed our Early Experiences program to deliver real-life learning experiences for your child.
As a toddler, children are opening up to new challenges as their communication skills expand and they learn to concentrate, experiment and play. Our educators support this magical phase through a program of play-based learning activities to help them explore their own interests and strengths.
Australia’s Early Years Learning "Framework, Belonging, Being and Becoming", is at the heart of our approach to early years education. The framework’s emphasis is on play-based learning. This includes things like singing to help your child learn about language; drawing with crayons to help them express their feelings and encourage writing; playing with shapes and patterns to develop their problem-solving skills; and group activities to build their social skills.
At our centre, you will find plenty of spaces that inspire your child’s creativity and imagination, which is so important for building social skills and self-confidence. Our toys, play equipment and resources are the types that would typically be found in the home, to help your child feel comfortable.
Some of the special features of our toddler early learning rooms include:
- A free choice of many creative resources, at a low height for easy access
- Spacious indoor and outdoor learning areas to pique children’s interests and engage their curiosity
- Open-ended resources such as a home corner that can be refashioned into a shopping centre kitchen, or café etc.
At Bambini Reedy Creek, our in-house chef prepares nutritious food that provides the children with the foundation and benefits of healthy eating. Our in-house chef also gives educational sessions on how to achieve sustainable health through food, and lessons on how to use basic kitchen utensils. We also provide weekly cooking experiences for the children, to help them become more comfortable in the kitchen and develop healthy habits from an early age.
At our centre we have a garden that we allow the children to care for and tend to, in order to further develop their heathy habits in a holistic way. Gardening engages all sorts of senses and helps children to develop and recognise them without even realising. It also teaches responsibility, patience Growing any sort of plant or vegetable from the seedling or bulb stage requires daily attention and care and most importantly it helps them develop an interest in healthy eating.
