The yellow room and the orange room

The Yellow Room has places for 12 children aged two to three-and-a-half, with three staff and breaks/lunch time reliever. The Orange Room has places for 14 children aged 3 - 4.5 years with three staff. The Orange room offers a kindergarten program supported by at least two Degree Qualified educators.

If a child turns 4 before April 30th in the year before they start in the room, the Centre may access funding provided by Victorian Government to support children to access a kindergarten program.

Our aim is to provide for all children in a warm, caring and safe environment where their innate willingness to grow and learn through experience is positively guided and encouraged.

Working both with your and our observations and expertise, we provide a play-based program that encompasses all areas of children’s interests, developmental needs and individual learning styles. We evaluate the program against the five learning outcomes in the National and the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework and modify it to cater for the children’s current level of skills and interests.

Our philosophy is to work in partnership with children and families sharing knowledge of the child, family values and being collaborative decision-makers. We hope to assist each family in feeling that they are part of our community through input to the program and participation in extra-curricular activities.

We encourage children’s aesthetic understanding, anti-bias education and environmental awareness.
