As a pack away setting, it gifts us a unique opportunity to prepare the room with different themes, toys and learning activities each day.
We have a number of pods around the room which are led by our Pre-School Assistants. They work closely with the children to ensure they are making the most of their experience and taking away key learnings.
Our outdoor area offers a varied environment for the children. In addition to our sandpit and outdoor toys, we have a roadway painted onto the floor which the children enjoy racing around.
Mid-morning we prepare a healthy, nutritious fruit and vegetable snack for the children. The children have the opportunity to choose what they would like which helps to build their decision making skills.
Lunch | Free play
At midday, children that join us for the morning session only leave us and the afternoon session children are welcomed for lunch. The children enjoy sitting around the tables together eating their packed lunch.
After lunch, there is further opportunity for children to enjoy free play or get involved in some of the many learning areas we set up around the room.
We finish the day at 3 pm, but beforehand our staff team lead story time with the children and songs are sung altogether.
