Koala's Room 3 - 5's

The Koalas Room strives to balance school readiness and the development of life skills within each child. Being such a small service, your child gets to understand and form bonds with everyone they meet while in care. Being a smaller service, we can give your child the time and space they need to reach their full potential. Our curriculum is a collaborative venture, negotiated with children and families, and developed by qualified early childhood professionals. We strive for excellence and leadership through delivering quality education services which are innovative and responsive to diverse family and community needs.

Current research and theory will inform our early childhood curriculum. We recognise the value and richness of children’s play as a catalyst for their learning. The Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Framework will guide the planning process in our services. Staff, children and families will discuss, reflect on, and evaluate the curriculum as it unfolds throughout each day. The Koala Room children will be provided with a curriculum that empowers, inspires and encourages children to further develop their knowledge and skills in all areas of life.

Our Koala Room children are pillars of our community and we love helping them explore and develop skills that help them prepare for school but more importantly skills they will utilise their entire lives. Our children pride themselves on making decisions that affect their world and exploring the wonders they can unfold.

As educators we are committed to critical reflection, evaluation and will regularly assess the appropriateness of the curriculum and our daily practice. We strive to ensure true inclusion, authentic and meaningful experiences.
