Our centre values the importance of a Play Based Program. We provide a wide range of activities and meaningful experiences each day. Our Qualified Early Childhood Staff create programs based on current research & practice.

Our High Quality Play Based Programs reflects the Early Years Learning Framework & Regulatory requirements under the National Quality Standards. They are designed to build on children’s own interests & strengths through meaningful experiences.

In Play Based Programs, Children are Learning all the time!

The learning that occurs in Play Based environments is often informal, gained as children interact, explore and try out different ways of doing things that our Staff have Intentionally Planned. Our Programs incorporate the Early Years Learning Framework & focus on five learning areas

  • Children have a strong sense of Identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to the world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident & involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators

These five areas promote many positive dispositions of learning, including

  • Persistence
  • Curiosity
  • Perseverance
  • Helpfulness
  • Taking responsibility
  • Social skills


Through revising activities many times children become successful learners. By interacting with others is a core feature of Play Based programs. Through their play children develop relationships with others and learn respect & tolerance towards each other & their environment.
