EARLY YEARS CARE
At All Star Learners we welcome early learners from 0-3 years, before they join our pre-school. We provide a stimulating and fun environment to enhance your child’s learning in their early years. Learning starts long before school and we have specifically designed our Early Years Care program to deliver real-life learning experiences for your child. As babies and toddlers, children are opening up to new challenges as their communication skills expand – they learn to concentrate, experiment and play. Our educators support this magical phase through a program of play-based and planned learning activities to help them explore their own interests and strengths.
The Early Years program includes excursions, incursions and a range of extra-curricular activities. The program is carefully documented for parents to view weekly. ‘Learning Journeys’ are carefully prepared for each child, which demonstrate the child’s progress throughout the year and are communicated with parents digitally through the Parent App. The child’s daily routine is also communicated via the App to update parents of their child’s eat, sleep and nappy routines.
Australia’s Early Years Learning Framework, Belonging, Being and Becoming, is at the heart of our approach to early years education. The framework’s emphasis is on play with purpose. This may include singing to help your child learn about language; drawing with crayons to help encourage writing; role-play to express feelings; playing with shapes and patterns to develop their problem-solving skills; and group activities to build their social skills.
At All Star Learners, you will find plenty of spaces that inspire your child’s creativity and imagination, which is so important for building social skills and self-confidence. Our toys, play equipment and resources are the types that would typically be found in the home, to help your child feel comfortable. Plus, specialised early years equipment is also offered, designed for early years settings.
“BIG THINGS OFTEN HAVE SMALL BEGINNINGS”
At All Star Learners we put great emphasis on creating a ‘home-away-from-home’ for our Early Years children where they will be cared for and nurtured as they would be at home. We attend to each child’s individual needs and developmental stage to give them a strong sense of security and the room to grow and explore at their own pace.
