“Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding” Robert John Meehan

TEACHING ROOM

IMG_3750.jpgThe Teaching room is a prepared environment providing an education foundation for successful future development.

The room is a well resourced, specifically designed environment set within the centre designed for children over 3 years.

Within this prepared environment we are able to recognise the unique and diverse learning approaches of each child. We are able to provide an educationally, creative and evolving curriculum supported by the following curriculum areas in which each child is able to choose freely from; literacy, numeracy, visual arts, music and movement, study of science, computer and technology, geography, cultural skills, study of topics, physical education, health and safety.
