Routine

We aim to provide daily routines that meet the needs of individual children and to implement a balanced program that is stimulating, interesting and exciting.

This allows opportunities for children to play, explore and develop new skills and is appropriate to the developmental and leisure needs of the children.

Children are encouraged to participate in this process by taking a vote in the afternoon or placing activity suggestions in the “Suggestion Box” at the centre. Below is a typical day at the centres.

This current week’s program can be viewed on the noticeboard at the centres.

An example of our afternoon is as follows:
