We believe that play is children’s work. Children play to learn, to grow and to experience the world around them. With this goal in mind, our centre is equipped and arranged to provide the optimum in self-exploration and hands-on learning. Children may plan things together (social), to pull, push, balance and lift (physical), and to explore and make observations (intellectual).
We use the Early Learning Framework to plan meaningful, planned and spontaneous experiences designed to support children’s development in all domains. Educators are encouraged to grab hold of spontaneous moments of learning, curiosity and wonderment, immersing themselves in the child’s world to extend, question and challenge children’s ideas.
Your child is unique. They have the right to choose and pursue their own interests. Peach Blossom’s program offers your child the choice of a wide variety of play experiences which balance the active and the restful, the noisy and the quiet, the indoor and the outdoor, individual, small group and large group experiences. Our program encompasses all areas of children’s age developmental skills with a strong focus on the social and emotional development of each individual child. Programs are planned to meet the needs of the group and the individual child regarding their ideas, interests and their developmental capabilities. Our program also supports your child to feel valued and successful; safe and secure; challenged and stimulated. Parental involvement is welcome and encouraged.
