Our Program

 

program_1We have combined the best of traditional preschool teaching methods (curriculum based and teacher directed) with more modern research into early childhood learning and development (Emergent Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework for Australia V2).

Adventures offers children opportunities to engage in activities which they would be excluded from in reality.

For example; Flying a plane, practicing as a doctor, building skyscrapers, cooking for a busy restaurant, captaining a ship, managing a zoo or conducting experiments. Everyday they have the chance to be someone different!

How it works

Our program takes advantage of a child’s natural willingness to play.

program_2We program intentional teaching to ensure traditional curriculum areas such as Literacy, Writing, Numeracy, STEM, Creative Arts, Music, Physical Development, Protective Behaviours, Social/Emotional Development, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Perspectives and Cultural Competency are also being introduced to the children at a level appropriate to their age and stage of development.

The program is flexible to ensure the emerging interests of individual children are included, taking advantage of natural “teachable moments”.

We observe children during free play sessions and planned activities, talk to parents and use the interests of the child to build their program. The benefits of this approach mean that children have many, different opportunities to grasp a single concept or develop a skill rather than one opportunity that pressures children to “get it right the first time.”

Out intent is that children play (the best method to learn), and our teachers will respond to children’s interests, creating new challenges and opportunities for intentional teaching.
