Our ProgramThrough ongoing individual and group learning stories, we aim to provide enriching experiences that encourage and promote learning and development.
We provide a rich, stimulating and diverse program that reflects both group and individual needs based on each child’s culture, developmental skills and interests. Our program is based on the ‘Early years learning framework’ promoting;
- Children’s sense of identity
- Connections and contribution to their world
- A strong sense of wellbeing
- Developing confident and involved learners
- Developing effective communicators
Our program not only covers the areas of language, cognitive, social/emotional, fine motor and gross motor development, but also provides for the holistic child including cultural awareness and incorporating each child and the local communities culture and practices . Children’s self-help skills and independence will be encouraged by providing opportunities that allow them to make important decisions about their lives.
Angels Childcare program is inclusive of children with special needs and CALD backgrounds; we aim for full inclusion of all children. Programs and plans will reflect the individual child’s needs, and where appropriate, resource workers and services will be utilized to provide extra support to the children, educators and families. We are committed to full participation of children with additional needs and CALD backgrounds in our service.
Our educators will encourage and assist with meal times, dressing, sleeping, toileting and nappy changing. Children are provided with a balance of active and quiet activities, and a rest time is provided each day. A balance of indoor and outdoor experiences will be provided.
Our services implement the letterland program Letterland is a unique, phonics-based approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling to 3-8 year olds. The Letterland characters transform plain black letter shapes into child-friendly pictograms and they all live in an imaginary place called Letterland.
Simple stories about the Letterland characters, explain the full range of dry phonics facts so that children are motivated to listen, to think and to learn. These stories explain letter sounds & shapes, allowing children to progress quickly to word building, reading and writing.
