Caterpillar Room (0-2 years)
The first months and years of life are vitally important for a child's long-term health, development, and wellbeing. This early development depends on experience, particularly social experience, which stimulates, tunes, and hones the brain's unfolding architecture. Therefore, in our babies' room, we provide different experiences that support our babies in their various developmental areas.
We, as educators, personally believe babies use their sensory skills to connect and engage with their surroundings as a stimulating, varied and responsive environment. Supporting the development of language, cognition and emotional and social competencies. It is proven; the dependence on environmental input makes the brain exquisitely flexible and capable of adaptation.
Babies can enjoy simple sensory play, such as touching different objects and surfaces and hearing how other materials create varied sounds. The educators provide all Sensory activities to enhance babies' learning developments. Children will learn and understand more about the world around them.
Similarly, Babies learn and develop new connections in their brains through play. We have a beautiful indoor and outdoor environment and age-appropriate resources selectively chosen for babies that support them in achieving their developmental milestones. Along with sensory experiences, the extra curriculum like music, movements, arts and craft activities helps our babies in their fine motor and gross motor skills development.
Cocoon Room (2-3 year olds)
Welcome to the Cocoon room at Get Set Grow ELC. In the Cocoon classroom, we encourage a lifelong love of learning in every child, creating more engagement and excited learners. We provide a stimulating, safe environment for your children to learn and play. Our educators in the Cocoon room work very hard to make sure all children are adequately prepared for school, regardless of background or family circumstances. We believe in enabling every child to reach their fullest potential.
The Cocoon classroom is designed to cater to our children's interests and facilitate development across the EYLF outcomes. Our educators in the Cocoon room are dedicated to supporting your child's transition through their early years of development and preparing them for the next phase of their young lives. Our classroom is equipped with a variety of resources designed to engage and stimulate your child's curiosity. The outdoor Cocoon room is designed to facilitate your child's journey through exploration, learning and growth in a safe, secure setting. We have a brand-new built-in cubby house in which our children are always excited to explore.
Through our Centre's app, your child's portfolio will contain daily journal entries, continuous photographs of your child and how they are going throughout the day, and other documentation, e.g., "sleep/rest time, mealtime, nappy time".
Our Cocoon program is designed for children ages 2-3 years. The program provides a balance of age and stage appropriate activities and play. Much earned rest and general care, designed to ensure your child has the best opportunity to develop a wide range of physical, intellectual and social skills needed to provide them with the confidence and desire for a lifelong passion for learning. At the end of every week, your child will receive a reward for showing the best skills sets through the week, for example, showing "excellent listening skills, great sharing skills, able to communicate with one another and show their love and care for peers in their classroom". This has been a triumphant achievement for our children, and we are grateful they get to go home with a smile on their faces.
The Room leader for the Cocoon's values your input and understands the importance of your child's progress and development and gives real-time information accessible via our website "Get Set Grow Early Learning Centre", or come in and talk to our excellent Cocoon educator. Let them show you how your children will thrive and guide you through our learning environments.
Butterfly Room (3-5 year olds)
In the Preschool Room, we support our students in making decisions and solving problems while empowering each child to meet their full potential. We, as educators, believe in the whole child approach, which is about holistic education, in which learning extends beyond the classroom to help our children's personal growth which is personalised.
The educators in the preschool room offer a plethora of opportunities for the children to improve and learn new skills by engaging them in physical activities like yoga, movement and exercises. We have a school readiness programme in the preschool room where the children learn literacy and numeracy while taking turns, listening and sharing. A child's emotional, social, and personal growth and development is aided by pre-reading and school readiness programmes. So, we support our Pre-schoolers in self-regulating their behaviours, sensory processing, emotional development, vocabulary and language skills development through the readiness programme. We strongly believe a child learns to speak at home, constant contact and exposure with children of the same age group and educators in preschool aids in the development of communication skills.
In the Get Set Grow Early Learning Centre, we provide Early learning languages Australia (ELLA) program in their Preschool room that develops children's social, thinking, and digital skills, supports their literacy, and can even improve memory and concentration. We Also promote Munch & Move programme that encourages and encourages our children healthy eating habits and physical activity while also limiting their exposure to small screens.
Our meals are prepared by a qualified cook at the Centre each day with all fresh ingredients. Our menu meets all nutrients children need each day and is approved by the Munch and Move program. We also cater to all our children's individual needs, and replacement food will be arranged for children with allergies, food Intolerance, and Cultural Beliefs.
