In the Hakea Room, we provide a safe and nurturing environment to cater for children’s individual developmental needs and interests. Our early childcare educators focus on forming strong relationships and attachment with the children.
We base our learning programs on children’s ages, stages, interests and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF). We create learning experiences to extend and develop children’s skills and provide meaningful learning activities for children to take part in.
Our educators provide continuous care for the children and staff are rostered to ensure there is always a familiar staff member so that children feel secure and comfortable. They work with families to establish a routine for the children based on their unique individual needs.
The Hakea Room has its own generous outdoor play space which has been designed to meet the learning needs of this age group. The space has large established trees, fruit trees, and vegetable gardens. The food is prepared daily in our kitchen by our experienced cook who ensures that the children’s nutritional needs are being met. We provide the children with morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea from a varied seasonal menu. Morning tea includes wholemeal and whole-grain options and afternoon tea offers a variety of (not so) sweet and savoury treats. Lunch meals change with the seasons but are always nourishing and delicious!
