Our Commitment To Sustainable Practices

 
At Towradgi Pre-School and Long Day Care Centre we encourage sustainable practices in conjunction with our policies to create an environmentally friendly and waste-free centre. We encourage families to be involved with this practice by avoiding packaging and wrapping in children's lunch boxes.
 
 
 

Program and Routine

 
Our programs are in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and are planned according to each individual child's interests. Our programs are tailored specifically to include:
 
  • The recognition of social and cultural backgrounds, ensuring all children are catered for
  • Play and early learning programs, encouraging co-operation, consideration, independence and the development of self-help skills such as toileting, dressing and caring for belongings
  • Routine designed to allow predictability and consistency throughout the day, helping children feel secure as they know what is coming the next day
 
Our experiences include:
 
  • Music (singing, dancing, playing instruments)
  • Dramatic play
  • Language and literacy
  • Physical activities
  • Creative experiences
  • Fine motor activities (play-dough, drawing, cutting etc.)
