Koolyangarra Early Learning Centre
Located at 4 Park Road West Highgate Hill. Koolyangarra is a small Long day child care centre that caters for children from 6 weeks to school age. Our service is a 3 room centre holding 40 places per day.
It is our aim at Koolyangarra to provide an environment where every child feels happy, safe and secure. Our centre aims to provide a place that will maximise each child's full potential. Children need to fee safe, loved and appreciated and we see high quality childcare as the right of each child.
Our program is based on a the well-known and highly regarded play based learning approach to Early Childhood Education. Through this approach to learning, we will carefully "grow up" you children's intellectual, emotional physical and social development. Play Based learning is important because it is culturally and developmentally appropriate, is inclusive of all ages of development and is supported by evidence based practice and brain research that informs the need for, and the nature of learning opportunities for children to develop attitudes, skills and understandings.
We believe that children need a structured environment in order to gain security, maximize their learning and learn respect for the rights of others. Within this structure, flexibility is required to provide a sensitive approach to children and families cultural needs. We have a culturally inclusive centre whose focus is working together, sharing and caring.
The next generation is our Future.
