The individual talents, personalities and behaviours of all children, and the National Quality Framework encourage and direct our curriculum. This creates the basis for stimulating and supporting children’s developmental journeys through play and learning experiences. To promote each child’s learning and growth, educators participate in continuous observation, analysis, preparation, and reflection. StarKids Early Learning Centre is the premier childcare centre in Ipswich and we believe that by allowing children to make their own choices and have a diverse range of opportunities, tools, and activities, we can provide and facilitate a developmentally relevant program in which children are allowed to learn at their own pace.
Our Centre has specifically designed playgrounds
As part of each group’s schedule, children can engage in both indoor and outdoor play. The outdoor space is an essential aspect of a child’s learning environment.
Children of all ages use our specially built playgrounds to assess their coordination, balance, expertise, and strength.
We work on a readiness program framework
Centred on the National Early Years Learning Framework, StarKids Early Learning Centre in Ipswich provides a comprehensive School Readiness curriculum for children aged 3-6. Play is the ideal vehicle for young children’s learning, offering the most suitable stimuli for brain growth. The Framework places a heavy focus on play-based learning. The Framework also recognised the significance of language and contact (including early literacy and numeracy, and social and emotional development).
Our program is designed with children in mind, and it is based on their individual and community needs.
We want to improve each child’s learning by:
- Empowering children to take charge of their education by providing them with various interactions, desires, and routines.
- Engaging children as teaching collaborators by soliciting their ideas, perspectives, feelings, and concerns.
- Engaging the children in fun tasks that will help them learn and develop.
- Fostering constructive interactions between groups and in social settings (small and large).
- Allowing children day-to-day autonomy within a versatile and predictable schedule.
- Teaching through the use of interactions, acts, and play.
- Helping with the routine encourages the children to develop their independence and self-help skills.
- Including relatives as allies in obtaining a complete image of the boy.
- Promoting options during the day by using the physical world as a third trainer.
