Finding care for your little one particularly in those early years is a daunting and exciting adventure. At Whiz Kidz Early Learning Centre we hope to provide your child with care that is close to his/her heart and home. Our nursery room is a relaxed environment where children can play and interact with each other and their educator. We tailor our routines to suit each individual child and children will encounter familiar experiences such as meal and play times, nappy changes and sleep whilst engaging in meaningful relationships with their educators.
Our babies room is an intimate environment that is built on security and curiosity. Children are encouraged to explore and develop their understanding of the world through their 5 senses. The room is safe and supports its babies to feel confident in their identity and in achieving those very important milestones.
Children in this age group are meeting new challenges and learn best in a stimulating environment. Our qualified educators help facilitate learning and discovery through interest based activities which encourage investigation and exploration.
Children begin to learn that they are capable of early, simple self-governance. We encourage a range of self-help skills like serving their own meals, dressing and undressing, and toileting. In addition to these physical accomplishments, toddlers are developing in other ways.
At Whiz Kidz Early Learning Centre we provide opportunities for our toddlers to play and share with other children developing social and emotional skills as well as supporting their cognitive and language skills by allowing them to explore, ask questions and use their imagination.
All children develop at different rates; however, in this age range children begin to explore the process of learning and refine their views of themselves and the world they live in.
Our qualified educators at Whiz Kidz Early Learning Centre maintain the value of play and focus on learning as it best suits the individual child. Developmental goals and objectives are furthered to include concepts of print, early reading and writing, as well as phonemic awareness.
Children are encouraged to not only explore their natural environment, but to engage with using their imagination and creativity. Through their play, our qualified educators teach the children to develop a sense of their place in the world and help them develop the confidence, problem solving and negotiation skills necessary for them to begin school.
Our butterflies are introduced to the concept of school routines and concepts which helps to ease the transition to Kindergarten. Whiz Kidz uses the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) as a guide in developing a play-based curriculum and learning experience for the children.
It is our priority at Whiz Kidz Early Learning Centre, to ensure that our pre-schoolers are equipped with the skills necessary for a smooth transition to school, but more importantly than this is that our children’s individuality is preserved and that all of our children are provided with authentic opportunities to grow and succeed.
We have developed a unique School Readiness Program that incorporates all aspects of children’s development, not only literacy and numeracy. We have created a program with activities that focus on helping the children develop:
