We believe that by creating a home like environment, it allows your child to feel comfortable within his or her surroundings and creates a trust between the child and educator.
The centre has two classrooms – The 2 and 3 year olds are cared for in the Ruby Room, where they have 3 educators between 15 children in the class daily. The 4 and 5 year olds are cared for in the Sapphire Room, where they have 2 educators between 20 children in the class daily, including 1 Early Childhood Teacher.
In the early morning (8am to 10am) and late afternoon (3.30pm to 5.30pm) the children are cared for in mixed age groups, either outside or in the Ruby Room. This allows the children to interact with their siblings, family and friends as well as develop independence and their own confidence and personality when they are in their own room throughout the day.
There are many different styles and philosophies about teaching and the way children learn in their early years. We believe that the curriculum used in a centre should reflect their philosophy and be appropriate to the specific setting of the service. Kid’N Around Early Education Centre does not use anyone particular style, approach, or type of curriculum, but implements a balanced program that draws on a range of approaches adapted to suit our service.
