Our Rivers room is a 3 year old Pre Kinder Program ran by our qualified early childhood teacher. Our educators build collaborative partnerships with families helping children to feel valued and develop a sense of belonging.
Children are provided with learning opportunities that maximize their learning and development through planned experiences, spontaneous play and intentional teaching. Children’s knowledge, background, culture and experience drive the program through a variety of rich experiences that provide children with the opportunity to engage in open-ended and spontaneous play, take risks and explore and discover the natural environment. Each child’s learning and development is assessed as part of an ongoing cycle of planning, documenting and evaluation.
Our inviting and natural environment allows children to explore their creativity and imagination through programs that are responsive to each individual child and scaffold their knowledge, interests and strengths. Our indoor / outdoor program supports children’s learning and development providing opportunities for children to engage in play based learning as they discover, create, improvise and imagine.
Our educators record each child’s learning and development in their own individual learning journal, which we encourage families to borrow throughout the year and can take home as a keepsake at the end of each year.
The Rivers educators welcome your feedback and are available for discussion about your child's needs, interests and development at any time. Phone calls during the day are welcome to ensure you are reassured your child is having a great day.
