Education Programs and Activities

Our centre is pleased to offer a range of educational programs across the centre at no extra cost.

Incursions (All Rooms) 

An incursion is a planned learning experience which is conducted within the Child Care Centre, and may involve members of the community attending the Centre to educate, perform or participate in learning experiences.

Examples of regular incursions each year include:

  • Healthy Harold from Life Education
  • Bravehearts
  • Wild Call Wild Life Show
  • Henny Penny Chicken Hatching Program

Japanese

Early Learning Languages Australia (ELLA) is a fun, digital, play-based language learning program for children in preschool. It helps children to become more comfortable with different languages early in life so that they can stay engaged with learning languages in later years.

Our centre is teaching Japanese through ELLA.

Children in the ELLA program learn language through apps, called The Polyglots. The apps are used on tablet devices and have been specifically designed for preschool children.

 ELLA is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to supporting language study in Australia.
