Our Preschool and Kindy rooms provide your child with learning experiences through allowing expression of individuality while having fun and enhancing curiosity and creativity.

Activities range from one-on-one to small and large groups encouraging social interaction and shared learning that fosters connections for your child to achieve a sense of wellbeing and belonging. (Supported by Montessori, Vygotsky & Piaget)

We understand the importance of language and communication (including early literacy and numeracy) - offered in our school readiness program.

Another priority for us is your child’s social and emotional development and to prepare them for a successful transition to formal schooling. All activities are provided in both structured and free choice experiences. (Supported by Froebel)

To bridge the gap between our preschool learning environment here at Brooke Avenue Early Learning Centre and formal school, we develop our curriculum with a foundation based on the Early Years Learning Framework and Early Stage 1 NSW Syllabuses.

Making healthy choices.

  • We promote a sense of being happy and healthy through our lifestyle choices.
  • We encourage age appropriate development of your child’s physical skills, competence in personal hygiene and an understanding of their personal safety and wellbeing.
  • We provide healthy and nutritional morning and afternoon tea along with educating your child about being responsible for their own health and wellbeing. (Supported by Gessell)

We listen to your child.

  • All children become highly engaged in the day’s activities because our curriculum is guided by the interests of your child and that of their classmates.
  • We are responsive to your child by valuing their strengths, skills and knowledge as we help to motivate and engage them in learning.
  • Every child can recognise their agency, ability to initiate and lead their own learning by us encouraging them to be an active participant and decision maker. (Supported by Montessori)

Keep you up to date on your child’s daily activities via the daily and weekly curriculum displayed within our Centre. We welcome and encourage families to contribute to our daily programs and help evaluate our activities and curriculum ongoing.

In partnership with you we would like your child to develop and thrive to their full potential, to learn, grow with confidence for a positive journey of life-long learning.
