Creative Arts Program

Our Creative Arts Philosophy

Our educational programs, inspired by the REA (Reggio Emilia Approach) and Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences, prioritize creativity and child-centered methods. Aligned with the Early Years Learning Framework and National Quality Standards, our flexible curriculum caters to specific age groups (0/1-2’s, 3-4’s, and 4-5’s), integrating structured sessions with open-ended flexibility.

Developed in collaboration with specialist Art, Dance, Music, and Physical Education teachers, our programs emphasize Earth care, nature connection, and interpersonal relationships throughout the learning day. Additionally, we actively foster mixed-aged and family group interactions, recognizing the value of diverse age group environments for collaborative learning and identity co-construction.

Foundations of Learning

Emergent Literacy and Numeracy Program

We’ve crafted an outstanding emergent literacy and numeracy program, curated by our university-trained primary school and early childhood educators, to provide every child with robust foundations for future schooling. Successful literacy and numeracy development involve various steps, including activities like singing, rhyming, and honing the ability to recognize and articulate beginning sounds and phonemes.

Through play, children acquire early pre-literacy and pre-numeracy concepts, fostering a love for books and language. Our approach integrates a parent library and reading program, aligning with holistic and child-centered literacy learning. We cultivate a passion for literature and emphasize the importance of speaking and listening. Within our practice, we seamlessly intertwine play-based methodologies and intentional teaching to promote the development of literacy and numeracy skills.
